Let's fall in love again
Mariusz Forecki - documenting Polish reality, with fabulous frames, witty observations, with love. He makes me want to fall in love with Poland. Or wake up to its not so obvious beauty, despite its imperfections and incongruences.
I think his micro-worlds shown in his photos reveal so much about this country, which has an ancient history, yet it feels so young and fresh. Ideas, democracy, culture, money all seem to be flowing into Poland and the minds of Poles. And we are still so attached to the old ways, old mentality. Being torn between the old and the new feels like a natural state of mind here. And I think Forecki shows it perfectly well.
