My documentary project 'Records' showing portraits of people living in a small province of Poland. I focused on special age range - people over 60 years old. Most of them retired, forgotten by the modern society, spending their time in their quiet flats. Every place is different, with a specific conditions and individual mood - like my characters, not models from fashion magazines, but people with a wide experience, who could still teach us about the life.
I'm proud to announce that my documental project 'Records' got awarded with a 3rd place in Rangefinder Portrait Contest, Environmental / Travel category.
