Jan Cieslikiewicz – GS 13 – Poland
I have amassed a relatively large archive of photographs over the last couple of years. Last fall I spent time working with this archive in a more deliberate way. What emerged is a story of escape from the daily grind of a modern lifestyle. It is a partly fictional, partly documentary body of work about finding solace in nature, adventure and a journey. The photographs were taken on a series of trips around the world, as well as in New York, but they are not about specific locations, but rather about a state of mind.
