Bajka

INFO: Bajka, (pronounced bye-ka), means fable or fairytale in Polish. The work looks back into the ways I connected with nature during my childhood in Poland and Australia. The images mould together memories, experiences and knowledge gained about plants and animals in both countries. Tied to an interest in environmentalism, this is also an inquiry into the mechanisms that elevate nature to a more important level on an individual and intimate basis.
