Wrocław / Poland / 15.02.2020
Wrocław. My favourite city. Every time we’re here, we discover something new. Today, our discovery was Żyjnia, a green *BWA space in the city centre. Entering through the entirely unassuming doors of the BWA, we enter a magical garden of life. Green plants, filtered light, birds chirping and green tea on request. The art of relaxation. The art of relations with oneself and the environment. The natural world hidden away in the BWA reminds us of nature, and that it is a part of us. Gray, cold and concrete outside. Hope accompanies us back to the hotel. The grasses are greener, leaves appear on the trees and panes of glass reflect the sunlight. Just a couple more months and everything will come alive. Or not.
*BWA is the well-known Gallery of Contemporary Art in Wrocław
Adolf Bay / Spitsbergen / Norway / 05.09.2019
The weather has changed several times since yesterday. It was snowing, it was cloudy, there were gusts of wind, now the sun is shining. We’re sailing to Adolf Bay to meet the Nordenskiöld glacier. The sun has come to life and everything has been transformed by saturation. Colour changes life. Colour kills death. The sun brings out the unique shade of the glacier from thousands of years ago; a lonely piece of Nordenskiöld floating alone, turning into water. Everything is beautiful in the sun. In the sun everything is alive, even when it is dying.

Each photograph used during the journey stops being luggage, changes its destiny, takes on a new life. It creates a unique travel sack with a story in the background. Always just one. One shot, one sack. Luggage (no excess)
