Polish Couple

One year of ultra-right Kaczynski’s party regime  was enough  to open Polish Pandora’s box, to awake mentality of former serfs, nationalistic  ideas, hate towards everything and everyone who is different. Here you have fulsome affection for traditions and religious symbols, drinking vodka under the ubiquitous crucifix, trashy colours, like those found on old photographs from vacations spent in DDR...  This is just a caricature. The pictures were post-processed intentionally in a showy, gimcrack manner just to show  the coarse and  boorish nature of some part of the Polish society.

This ongoing project has been created together with one of known Polish photojournalists,  my ex-husband, Przemek Wierzchowski.
