Side Effects by Kacper Kowalski from Poland
A documentary photo project about the complicated relationship between humans and nature. “It was shot from a paraglider some 500 feet above the ground, mainly in the area surrounding Gdynia, Poland, where I live,” Kowalski explains. “What interests me most is the answer to the question: What is the natural environment of humans? An untouched, virgin landscape? Or a landscape that has been changed, adapted to human needs? My work offers a graphic and sometimes abstract portrait of how civilization comes into being.”
