Liliana Bilińska was born in Szczecin in 1948, died in 2016 in Pułtusk). She studied at the Warsaw Technical School of Phototechnics at Spokojna Street and was quickly admitted to the Association of Polish Art Photographers. From 1966, she participated in over 120 exhibitions in Poland and outside our country, she won many awards and distinctions, including Gold Medal at the Polish Exhibition of Art Photography (1966) and Silver Medal in the Small Formats competition organized by the Warsaw Photographic Society 1967).
At the beginning of her artistic activity, she was associated with Andrzej Brzezinski, with whom they experimented with photographic matter. They sought themes for their creativity in the Mazovian countryside and in the poor districts of Warsaw. She visited the Beksiński family with her camera and took portraits of Zdzisław in his painting studio, as well as his son - Tomasz.
Bilińska was an excellent documentarian of trade union life. Her recent photographs are an interesting attempt to process previously made prints and slides, which were then assembled, colored, and wiped off. Unfortunately, only a small part of her huge artistic output has survived.
Magdalena Grzebałkowska mentions this talented artist in her book "Beksińscy - dual portrait".
