Tomasz Kowalczyk "Deserted land"
Fot.

The light reflected from the Macelowa mountain falls through the lens into the camera. The mirror behind the lens reflects the light directing it towards the germinating grain. The image of the mountain becomes the perpetrator and also a witness of wheat growth.

Work done during a visit to Sromowce Niżne, the place where I grew up.

On a patch of field belonging to my family, I made a gesture towards the land on which I grew up. I planted grain inside the camera obscure, until recently grown by my loved ones here. It grew in the presence of the designed image, especially for me the important, Macelowa mountain.
