‘Journal’ I somehow adore french. Probably…

A couple of Frenchies yet told you they can help. :) Where did you find this, Mateusz?

Yeah, I can count on my French followers. Those are lovely offers! This photography was taken in long abandoned hotel facility, or more precisely a resort known till today as ‘Juventour’. During People’s Republic of Poland time it was quite active, but didn’t survive system change. Unfortunate privatization in '90 killed it for good. Right now it’s a complete goner, crude and ascetic. Some of my previous photos were made there, it’s a building full of nostalgia. This specific shoot was done on a massive scrap-heap located right next to ruined concrete skeleton. This magazine was so 'out of time and space’ among the ubiquitous rotting waste that it mesmerized me in some way. I hope to come back there soon to explore what is left.

Claudine - Tu m'accuses donc d'avoir une sensibilité parisienne? Je l'accepte volontiers. Les Américains imaginent depuis longtemps les Français (plutôt les Parisiens) comme décadents. Quelle meilleure preuve que ça, que les Parisiens s'intéressent au pourrissement? J'y participe de tout mon coeur mon amie. :-)

Claudine! Pas exactement. Le New York Times va sponsoriser un événement en avril (gratuit pour les photographes choisis) au cours duquel des grands photographes professionnels vont donner des conseils en privé, aux photographes choisis, de leurs portefeuilles photographiques, organiser des séminaires sur des pratiques commerciales, comment se font les demandes officielles de subvention et comment trouver des galeries représentantes.
