"Behind the Curtain”

Forgotten and useless things covered in dust; emaciated cats running around searching for leftovers; rooms taken over by spider webs and the strong odour of alcohol. This is just part of the chaos I found photographing over a period of one year in my village, Palmowo and the surrounding area in Poland. The series represents a personal journey through the individual stories of the men and women dealing with alcoholism. I have attempted to create a visual narrative to reflect on my own story of the past. All the characters are not necessarily alcoholics, but everyone has been affected by alcoholism, through family or friendship.
