"Perhaps it’s true that things can change in a day. That a few dozen hours can affect the outcome of whole lifetimes. And that when they do, those few dozen hours, like the salvaged remains of a burned house—the charred clock, the singed photograph, the scorched furniture—must be resurrected from the ruins and examined. Preserved. Accounted for. Little events, ordinary things, smashed and reconstituted. Imbued with new meaning. Suddenly they become the bleached bones of a story."

"To find beauty in war photographs seems heartless. But the landscape of devastation is still a landscape. There is beauty in ruins."

When my great grandfather was dying, I couldn’t spend his last days with him. I felt so hopeless, knowing I can’t do anything about it and guilty for not visiting him more often while I could. As much as I wanted to be there with him, I couldn’t and this made me think differently about my family in poland and how we are separated from each other and don’t spend enough time together. This September, while visiting my family in Poland, I’ve decided to photography my grandfather who is also sick while I still can. I felt the urge to do this. The first two portraits of my grandfather haven’t been posed, I took them two days before he ended up in a hospital, while the remaining three I took, when he was gone. His shirt was left exactly the way he left it, untouched. My grandparents have been supporting a Polish medical foundation, and now my grandfather needs help himself.
