Before showing series from Poland, few words on how it started:
In Detroit, I bought my most important camera - the Mamiya 7.
“And then we hit the road.”
The American landscapes greatly impressed me – I would constantly see the traces of famous photographers such as
Ansel Adams or William Eggleston. However, throughout my journey I felt that nowadays, after they have already been there, it is really difficult to photograph something new there.
When I returned to Poland I felt really tempted to continue this series. I realized that all around me there is an unsurveyed area that had not been photographed in modern times. I started working on it in extremely harsh conditions - autumn was turning into winter, so Poland was monochromatic, depressing, dirty and cold.
My expeditions would last up to a week each. My assistant would drive so that I could look through the window
during the journey. We travelled at night. We would go to sleep at 8 a.m., still a winter dawn, and get up around 2 p.m. already at dusk.
Photographing Poland during the day is a very challenging task. I think the only time it makes sense is at dawn.
Dawn after a sleepless night always impresses me.
