"A Man Feeding Swans in the Snow" - The photograph was taken in Cracow, from the Grunwald Bridge. The nature-created contrast of white snow and dark water, the two separated by a straight line of the waterfront, serves as a reflection of the Yin Yang symbol of opposing, yet complementary forces.
The dark silhouette of a man against the light background, and the white swans on dark water which are surrounded by a ring of black ducks complement the photograph, enabling numerous interpretations of it.
This simple, powerful frame infused with universal symbolism is legible to many different, often diverse cultures.
The photograpy was placed in newspapers and portal from around the world (for example: England - The Guardian , Germany – Der Spiegel, Israel - Yedioth Ahronoth, Italy – La Repubblica, Denmark – Politiken, Switzerland - 20 Minuten , Greece - Athens Voice, Australia - The Daily Telegraph, USA - National Geograohic...)
Photography was awarded by the first prize (Grand Prix) in the international competition Grand Prix de Découverte: International Fine-Art Photography Award. It was also accepted to the prestigious collection of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France and The Silesian Museum in Katowice.
At the end of 2013 "The Huffington Post"- one of the most influential online newspapers in the world, has released its list of "2013's Most Striking Fine Art Photography". Among the five of selected photographs there was also photo "A Man Feeding Swans in the Snow".
"Hiroshima - Phoenix Rising from the Ashes" - This photograph is a meditation on good and evil, life and death. The photo's reference is the place where it was taken: the city of Hiroshima. Now one of humanity's most prominent sites, during WWII razed to the ground by the most powerful weapon mankind has ever invented and used. Dropping an atomic bomb on Hiroshima killed well over 100,000 innocent people and crippled many more.
The city, just like the mythical bird phoenix – a representation of eternel rebirth – emerged from the ashes and became a symbol of memory, peace and mercy. These notions are best conveyed by the saying “the greatest way to avenge your enemy is by forgiveness”.
"Out of the Grey" - Gray symbolises the bland, dull, joyless life that we try to change by filling it with new and more valuable content.
Although often we succeed in this endavour, we begin the new period with a baggage of experience. Out of the gray (towards white) can also be seen from a spiritual and metaphysical perspective – as a natural desire to do good, or as the unearthly journey from Purgatory to Heaven.
"The Graph of Life" - This photograph is a meditation on the evanescence and passing of a human life. The graph shown in it can be perceived in many ways: as associated with the passing of years, gaining experience and wisdom, or even with the spiritual and the transcendent …
"Liberation" - this image allows for a variety of interpretations. As individual you can set free from different life weaknesses and limitations, you can overcome obstacles on the way to reach your goals. In terms of the larger community, you can set free from any tyranny, dictatorship, orthodox attitudes or lack of respect for basic human rights.
"A Game of Chess" - On the social, economic and political "checkerboard" of our daily life there is an on going struggle / game, which are often accompanied by crises, scandals, bureaucracy, intolerance, aggression and destruction of the environment.
Not everyone accepts this state of affairs, especially those who do not want to hear from the enemy "checkmate". That’s why they are forming groups of opposition to all forms of evil, mischief, stupidity, nepotism and corruption. In a peaceful way but extremely strongly they are more and more often overlooking on the city streets to express their discontent and showing how to change the world for the better and make it friendlier to all people.
