Celebration of Independance Day in Poland, 11.11.2013.
Presented photos shows March of Independance organized by ultra right-wing nationalist groups from Poland. I’m not proud of way of thinking and behavior that they present by themselves. These groups becomes ultra nationalist and fascist. They use symbols and ideologies of fractions which our grandparents were fighting during II World War.
I’m also specifically not proud of this material. Nationalist militias participated in this march, they made lot of damages and robberies in Warsaw, attacking one of Squats in Warsaw, seting fire under contemporary sculpture, destroying lot of storefronts and attacking embassy of Russia. I was taking photos of that incident and a crowd of angry beasts attacked me, and take lynch on me (for being photographer and doing my job), destroying part of my gear. I’ve lost half of material with riots, fighting with police and frames from embassy attack. Friend of mine - also photographer - was taken to hospital, alfter being thrown to the ground and kicked several times in the head (they taked of his helmet! bastards). This should not happen.
One thing - please do not allow Your fellow-citizens to make that point. It’s pointless. Cheers.

Somewhere near Polish & Ukraine border area exist place floating in space. It’s place where tradition meets modernity and history fights with cultural and national disagreements. In spite of all, people are friendly here and nature is wonderful and irresistible.
People here have a lot of patriotic strength. Most of them dislike neighbors from East. But vodka, cigarettes and gas are cheaper in the east. “Sellers” came across the border to sell illegal products. Lot of them risks accusation of smuggling, but they do it for extra money (in many case’s it’s a full time job). Paying attention to what is happening at Ukraine nowdays, revelations about refugees in gas tanks are not so extraordinary.
Bohemian-Saxon Switzerland, some photos from set made for Gdy Zyje Sie Zdrowo food & lifestyle blog
Bohemian Switzerland is a picturesque region in the north-western Czech Republic. It lies on the Czech side of the Elbe Sandstone Mountains north of Děčín on both sides of the Elbe River. It extends eastward into the Lusatian Mountains and westward into the Ore Mountains. The National Park is adjacent to the Saxon Switzerland National Park. It’s a beautifull region full of delicious food, nice people and great hiking sites. Mountains are'nt high, but there are lot of really steep rocks and view points. Also bikers will love this place - due to diversity of terrain.
