The space is filled with living and dead matter. Both matter penetrate each other. Coal, tree and smoke.Houses, chimneys and streets.

Everything that surrounds me is a part of me. White smoke fills my nostrils, the sun causes slow growth. The tree turns into coal, the man turns into smoke. It flares up and disappears. 

I was born and live in Wodzisław Śląski in Upper Silesia. Every day I see mines choking in heavy smog. Although the climate seems not very friendly, it has become commonplace for me. Time seems to have stopped in the place, I have the impression that this moment was going to last. Houses and streets, heaps and chimneys, and only the thick smoke coming out of the chimney reminds me of the passage of time. I started the series in 2013. I used both a digital camera and the traditional analog one to make it. The photographs in the form of a square were made with a medium-format Holga camera.
