Feature / Distant Place / Closed circuit by Agnieszka Rayss

Warsaw, the Vistula River. I photographed a process without which life in the city would be impossible. We draw water from beneath the Vistula and return it to the river. These places are seldom seen. It is the machinery of the river which we try to conceal and not to look at. It’s a mysterious […]

Feature / Distant Place / Ecosystem by Michal Luczak

There is a wild forest in the center of Warsaw. Together with the Vistula, it divides the city into two parts. It looks like a no-man’s land. But just beyond the first line of trees, there is a different world, opposed to city life.

Feature / Distant Place / About the man who jumped off a bridge by Rafal Milach

Feature / Distant Place / Mission completed by Jan Brykczynski

The golden era of the Vistula River is long passed. There is no more need to monitor river traffic or to deepen its channels and clear it of debris. The signals and signposts have all disappeared. Times have changed, and the golden era for people closely tied to the Vistula, like Bogdan, a push-boat mechanic, […]

Feature / Distant Place / Studio Vistula by Adam Panczuk

The models’ age, educational background and nationality are of no interest to me, like in a photographer’s studio when a client walks in. The photographer doesn’t know too much about him, and neither […]
