Far away from everything

23 Feb, 2024

I traveled a lot as a child. Even though it was only in my head, it was the only way to escape from the harsh reality. Sitting for hours in the crown of an old tree, I created new worlds. Their complex structure was created by fragments of reality and images remembered from films watched on VHS. This mix was complemented by creations of my imagination rooted in local folklore and beliefs. It was such a vast and absorbing area that I explored it for many years. As I grew up, I gradually lost access to this part of myself. Escaping to inner worlds no longer provided an apparent sense of security. Eventually it became impossible. Only fragments of images that come back to me remain in my memory. Most often when I see something that I find attractive. Then shivers appear on my spine, but not the usual ones. This is the kind of premonition that cannot be confused with any other. Then I get the irresistible impression that I have seen it somewhere before, that I already have this image in my head. Then I know that this is the moment I need to release the shutter.
