DICHOTOMY- rarely do we realize the role of this term on a daily basis of our hectic lives. However, we should be constantly aware that the power of this phenomenon is the core of our existence. Dichotomy, nomen omen, has a double meaning. The duality appears as a contrast or correlation. We have day and night, joy and sorrow, good and evil, the dead and the living, the division of colours, two legs, a pair of hands, unless mother nature or an unfortunate accident interfere with the basic order of our existence. Fortunately, there is art photography, which has the power of illustrating the two versions of dichotomy, as shown in the works of the artists from the BTF (Białystok Photography Society). By means of a camera, we show the audience and ourselves, the omnipresence of duality in our reality. The development of photographic technology allows photographers to use the so-called bifurcation- which simply means divergence, duality of the surrounding world. BTF (Białystok Photography Society) was established on 18th July 1953. Among its most active members at that time were: Wiktor Wołkow, Henryk Rogoziński, Waldemar Jasienowicz, Waldemar Grzegorczyk, Piotr Sawicki, Janusz Niechwiedowicz, Zbigniew Ciepłucha, Marek Dolecki, Zdzisław Rynkiewicz. First Polish photography competition “Biennale of Sports Photography ” and “„Czas i Obraz Północno – Wschodniej Polski” was organised in the 70’s.
