Georg Worecki (born July 28, 1961 in Düsseldorf) is a German director & photographer of Polish-Italian descent.

 

After graduating from high school, Georg Worecki met actors Eddi Arent, Klaus Havenstein, Willy Millowitsch and Alexander Golling as a theatre technician at the Rheinisches Landestheater Neuss in 1981. According to studying German, art and building history at the Eberhard Karls University of Tübingen and the RWTH Aachen University, he completed an apprenticeship as a theatre director & was engaged inter alia together with Hermann Florin, Etty Resnik & Klaus Hoser. In 1994 he finished his play „Seventh Solitude“.

 

Since 1999 he has also been working as a freelance photographer. In 2004 Georg Worecki took over the co-directing of the experimental short film „Future Light Lounge Proposal“ about visual and sound artist Brian Eno. Between 2004 and 2008 he staged black and white pictures with various theatre professionals in the Rhineland. He had his first US solo exhibition in 2010 in Richmond, VA. From 2012 to 2017 he lived and worked in Luxembourg. The main focus of his photographic activity is neorealism street photography. He is involved in Book Publications with GMB Akash, Francesco Cito, Susan Meiselas & Nino Migliori.

 

"To trace the immediacy of strangeness, the spell of otherness, to visualize the unexpected, is an act of deliverance from the noise of the daily grind. Essentially I make the attempt to project the secret of life onto a screen."
