Present day Poland is now shaped by an unprecedented level of outside influences. Massive transformation is underway. The effects of urban regeneration and globalization have given rise to a fascinating interplay of contrasts between poverty and wealth, the old and the new. These events paint pictures of changing lives within a changing landscape, scenes that could have never been captured 20 or 30 or so years ago. The photographer's role here can be to pose questions about a shifting cultural identity, or to evidence stages of a before and after. In this body of work I attempt to capture the defining spirit of a people and place through a period of radical change.
