A Warm Wind at NIght

A Warm Wind at Night is a photographic attempt to map the moments that eventually
become the myths of our growing past.

It is a search to find the sites where these silent memories and places begin to create a landscape of reference points within a finite time.

As certain smells can evoke images in our minds from past stages of life, so the Warm Wind at Night stands for a special time in Piotr’s life. In these two months in Australia he has found himself in a silent spot between two lives – his previous one and a new coming stage back at home – as a father.
