As fate would have it, last spring I found myself making my way to Poland. The enigma of the internet allowing for a spur of the moment introduction to newly acquainted family members. Our separation resulting from my Dziadzia’s immigration to the United States after World War II. Its quite the feeling to arbitrarily wake up one day to correspondence from family of which I had no knowledge of the night prior when I fell asleep. I surmise that few in this world are afforded the opportunity to visit their ancestral lands, let alone in the company, generous hospitality, and guidance of their relatives. The next 60+ photographs are captures created from my time in the county. Their thesis to encapsulate the day-to-day life of a country I’m lucky and to have visited. My gratitude, appreciation, and love to my family unable to be expressed in words beyond these.
