Interiors

Each journey begins from the inside. A set of photographs was created during work on a project telling about the nineteenth-century ways of traveling: a raft, a sailing ship, a balloon. All images were registered in the wet collodion technique. It was a process that allowed photographers to leave the studio more and more easily. Like them, I was fascinated by the movement. It was also a journey on the scale of exposure - to light. I was able to illuminate my low-sensitive plate for fractions of a second. At the other end of the scale were photographs of interiors, which I registered for several minutes. Because these are abandoned places, perhaps - some anthropomorphizing them - it was easier to wait for them, until a small dose of light registered the picture. Initially, I did not connect them in a cycle. Soon I saw that they belong to the journey like the smell of a home after returning from vacation.
