FAMILY DINNERS - SZCZECIN 1978-2008
Found Family Photographs, Acrylic
2009


Collection of reworked photos of family dinners that took place in my mother's family home in Szczecin, Poland, ranging from 1978 to 2008. The series of photographs show the evolution of life in Poland, from the communist 70s and 80s, to today's modern consumerist times, while its traditions and mentalities remain unchanged. The tables may look more and more sophisticated and the packagings more colourful, but the vodka and bread still taste the same.
