Studio-Set commission for artist Wojtek Wieteska.

Text from artist: En passant par la France, I am in Poland and since 1986 have been photographing what I find visually interesting and worth remembering: people, landscapes, objects, as well as persons and places I feel close to. These photographs are taken in the rhythm of my personal, professional and artistic life.

At the turn of 2003 and 2004, I made the first edition of the photographs in the archive: I had no punchline. I had been using several photographic conventions because I wanted to be several photographers at once, knowing that an edition would produce a sum total and only this moment would be ‘decisive’.

The album also sumarizes different periods of Polish history: 3 years of Peopel’s Poland era, 13 years of independent Poland and 9 years of EU Polish membership.
