Slavic Bestiary project deals with decoding specific polish folk traditions using original folk garments and technique of wet plate collodion.

It explores Slavic culture and is informed by pagan traditions that have been a part of my past, drawing upon connection between human and nature. Every photograph has originated as physical object-a glass plate. Original folk garments taken from the closets of polish museums bear the forgotten traditions-the figure of mythological Turon-that welcomed a new year or traditional costumes of Cracow-are authentic ritual costumes.
