a project for 2015 MIA fair in Milan (group show)
So! This is it. Water, our life. And bread – still life. Blossoming fields, human presence in the world cut on equal squares. 130 drops of water, beautiful and unique - like humans. Eating habits among different cultures: rice for ones, for others slice of bread are the most important. Scarcity against waste of food. Trash. Remainings of human activity. Three of the best known Polish photographers Kacper Kowalski, Wojtek Wieteska, Paweł Żak express strong connections to natural environment, sustenance of human being and respect to the planet. Asking difficult questions in beautiful images.

Wojtek Wieteska (b.1964) one of the most famous Polish photographers. He grew out of the Polish, French and American schools of reportage photography and has his individual style, characterized by his conceptual approach to reality. His works are exemplified by a mood of contemplation and loneliness, giving an impression of the photographs holding a sense of secrecy and emotion.
Pawel Żak (b.1965) is focused exclusively on art photography. He works with flowers compositions, sometimes with architecture. He loves “slow photography”. In his moody nostalgic still lifes or solemn landscapes he has a complete control over spectators emotions. He is a master of classic photography and noble techniques. Shots mostly on film, creating images often recognized as paintings rather than photography.
