Geoforms are patterns, colors and shapes filtered through the lens; forms, which despite the closeness to the aesthetics of abstract painting, remain the work of nature. However, they gain their full-fledged status only in the Henryk Cirut’s lens, whose pictorial photomicrographs become an evidence of the power of creative observation, arrangement of the frame and sense of detail. Henryk Cirut’s work oscillates around visual representations of the forces of nature. The perception of beauty and history stored in the landscape becomes a gateway to a deeper exploration and sensitivity to the world.
