Krzysiek is a documentary photographer based in Warsaw. Together with a team Ewelina Oszczypała, Ola Piotrowska, and model Jakub Michałowski the story Rooms was created. The shoot speaks about the recognition that one no longer belongs to the space he grew up in. Familiar rooms are no longer home in a sense of a personality who developed to something else, and though the physical place is familiar, it does not fit any longer.

 

This contrast creates a feeling of discomfort, of boredom and yet a desire to explore and bring to a change. The experimentation with clothes in a search for a new definition of the self takes place in the rooms that might become an impediment to a change unless the person decides to be freed from those walls.

‘THE MAIN IDEA WAS TO CREATE A FEELING OF BEING NO LONGER COMPATIBLE WITH THE PLACE YOU GREW UP IN’

Tell about some styling decisions that combine everyday clothes, Adidas sportswear, and vintage items? What was the main aesthetic feeling you wanted to achieve?

It was an improvisation, honestly. Most of the clothing was the person's belongings mixed up together. The main idea was to create a feeling of being no longer compatible with the place you grew up in.

What story from the shooting day can you share that was one of the best moments with the team?

The most bizarre situation was when I realized, in the morning, that the crew had no sleep and some came straight from the party. The shoot was at my parent's house, so it was even weirder and funny.

How do you approach photographing indoors in terms of using natural and artificial light to create a certain atmosphere?   

In this project, my main goal was to create a natural and intimate atmosphere. The project is psychological - it's about our personal experiences. That's why this choice was made, adding an additional thing grabbing away our attention (like for example a flashlight from the camera) wouldn't fit for this, in my opinion.
