The exhibition catalogue of Miejsce odległe / Distant Place is a cardboard box containing a collection of files, documents, evidences about Vistula river. The photographers Jan Brykczyński, Michał Łuczak, Rafał Milach, Adam Pańczuk and Agnieszka Rayss of the Sputnik Photos collective, each photographed a story about Warsaw’s iconic Vistula River. With this box we had a time capsule in mind, it symbolically functions as a memory box of how the river banks looked at the time. These small worlds and the wild nature right in the city of Warsaw was about to disappear.
