INFO

Please join us and meet photographer Michal Iwanowski who launches his photobook Clear of People, published by Brave Books Berlin.

Michal Iwanowski’s grandfather Tolek, and great uncle Wiktor, escaped from Soviet captivity and crossed over 2000 kilometres on their fugitive journey home in 1945. 70 years later, Iwanowski followed his grandfather’s footsteps and retraced the original journey.
But what had started as a quiet tribute soon turned into a meditation on the strength of the human spirit. How do you carry on when your body gives up? What hope drives you blindly forward when your life is so obviously disposable?

Iwanowski has no interest in judging history, nor is he interested in glorifying his relatives. Instead he asks what happens to all those people who one day wake up to a war? Who mourns the lost ones? In his project he reveals a landscape crowded with ghosts, on their fugitive way home. East. West. North. South. There is no room in history books to fit all those people, but they find their place in Iwanowski’s.

Michal Iwanowski  is a Cardiff-based photographer and a Ffotogallery tutor. He studied Documentary Photography at the University of Wales, Newport, graduating in 2008. Iwanowski’s work explores the relationship between landscape and memory, looking for histories, individuals and traces about to fade.
