London, six cold and humid days in May in 2019.
I was walking on the streets of this great city as a stranger, as an observer. Small details, gestures and strange moments reveal to me the hidden face of this world city beneath its shiny mask. Loneliness, boredom, melancholy and uncertainty – sometimes you can see them, when you adjust your vision.
The surreal streets of this self-sufficient city, self-sufficient island... On the streets and squares of London, in any public places you can find the magic and the mystery of human beings. And if you have enough patience and a compassionate eye, the Providence will reveal something deep and unseen about their souls.
After spending half a year with a camera around my neck I wandered around streets of Poland, visiting big towns and small cities. Watching the shore line and country sides. My ritual fulfillment urged me to take pictures of scenes, portraits and landscapes around this vast country.
And as I have photographed I saw those scenes and people in my photographs bleak and lost in thoughts. Lonesome. Thinking . Forgetting the present. And these pictures present just that. It is a series of everyday life peculiarities and unusual moments. Candid pictures about a particular society living their most ordinary lives.
