"DARK HOUSE"
I'll be a father in less than four months. The new life situation changed my attitude
to the environment in which I live. I started to analyze them more.
I asked the Provincial Police Headquarters to confirm the truthfulness of the media reports on
crime topic in my immediate area.
A series of photos composed of under-washed, scanned not "in a frame"
photos of places where crimes have been recently committed. The aesthetic layer is appealing
both to the title and to the nature of the project. The set of image features is something like a permissive mask
go deeper into the history of this place.

"YOU, MYSELF, I"
Twelve years ago, my great-grandmother Bronisława began to suspect memory loss. Wishing to save from oblivion the people she loved, she wrote down their names, surnames and stories related to them in a thin notebook. She wrote down both old and everyday stories.
Years earlier, her daughter Anna, before her death, wished to save the memory of the prematurely lost father, she began working on a family album, filling only a dozen pages. She never finished the work.
Eleven years after her death, based on rudimentary notes from photos, memories - I am creating this history anew. 
It is a story of people I "knew" and loved.
The history of people whom I was able to "get to know"
