Notes from is Jerzy Wypych’s graduation project realised at the Department of Art Mediation, Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław. At the WRO Atelier, there will be the defence of Jerzy’s master’s thesis and a one-day presentation of his project.
As Jerzy writes:
»Notes from« is a photo book that is the result of my ethnographic searches in the area of the Wrocław district of Ołbin. To realize this project, I was inspired by the characteristic sense of the space of this place and the accumulation of accidents. The book is a subjective walk, without a guide or a direct context, through a space that in a way has become not indifferent to me. The presentation of the book is accompanied by an audiovisual record and prints. The project is based on visual ethnography and auto ethnography. (…)
