Hibernation

“I am particularly interested in the concepts of place, interaction and integration. What I see through photography is relations, usually between man or manmade, surrounding space and the natural environment. Furthermore, I keep an eye on the construction of the urban space according to the impact of social activities and how this development in turn shapes humans as social entities, subsequently evolving to attributions of identity.

Hibernation is an ongoing series of photographs made in Poland. Poland’s national and social culture, emerging in the bleak polish winter, are the first elements aspiring to form the dominant narrative of the series. Elements of manifestation are to be found in various aspects of daily life; architectural disjunctions, urban morphology, social and behavioural patterns, in a political and historical backdrop during a struggle for an identity.”
