Aneta is implementing this project as a means to articulate feelings and emotions that relate directly to personal and cultural identity. The photographs capture intimate scenes, within which we find objects associated with the tradition of her homeland. The items reflect Polish culture. They are souvenirs from trips away, as well as items from the family home. Aneta has utilised manipulated focus to emphasis the recollection of memories. The work reveals the passion for nostalgia, which is important to Polish communities. However, the photographs hint at scenes tainted by a melancholic lack of clarity, reflecting a nations feeling towards the past. The environments contain everyday objects, but all are significant to those who have an awareness of polish culture.
