In many beliefs there is an alternate world that exists between what we are taught is real and what lies beyond. Piotr Zbierski seeks to explore pathways between these two realities by crafting an impressionistic visual record of humanity.
He has travelled extensively, focusing on a number of different communities, photographing and paying homage to their unique ceremonies and daily rituals. For many of the tribes, these traditions act as a bridge between material reality and a spiritual understanding of the wider world. In his practice Zbierski considers how different cultures express and communicate their ancient ancestral connections to nature and this experience of an ‘in-between’ world.
Echoes Shades is the photographic analysis of the relationship and coexistence of nature and culture.
