"The existence of ornamental plants in public and private places."

Tell us about yourself.

I am self-taught photographer based in Myszkow, Poland.

From the beginning of my adventure with photography I was most interested in photographing people. As the time has passed my perception of photography has evolved. Documentary photography has increasingly began to attract my attention.

Talk a bit about your project - remnants of hope -

The color green is known as the color of hope.

In this project I document the existence of ornamental plants in public and private places. Flowers as a kind of human element in the tight sterile and cold world of workplaces.
Arek Sołtysik In communist Poland people wanted to have a substitute of home, warm home that they tried to move to a working environment. Flowers in an "empty" space, which is a matter of fact "nobody's", symbolizes a man with his hope for a better tomorrow, a better job, better people next door, better conditions.

Times have changed, and the flowers ... flowers stayed.
