»Niewybuch« gives a insight into the world of military camps, a phenomenon that has experienced a massive influx in Poland in recent years. In addition to being taught military basics, children and young people are playfully indoctrinated in obedience, fearlessness and patriotism. The young soldiers appear like play figures, their frozen facial features concealing any emotion. Between fake blood, drill and the unreserved use of weapons, the work raises the question of the emotional effects of military education and addresses the tension between a child's search for adventure and the excesses of the Polish military cult.
I am am polish photographer and use photography as a means of self-expression to identify with hidden qualities of my character, to better understand my reality, and to express her interpretation of the world around me. By photographing, I transform my own childhood memories. Growing up was always accompanied by the urge to discover something else.
