A Curious Question To / Tomasz Laptaszynski

A! is a photographic project by Tomasz Laptaszynski
in which he is looking for traces of antique culture in Polish household.

“I’m interested in „popantiquity”, roadside architecture, loose associations and whatever people in Poland remember, like, cultivate that comes from antiquity. Traditional antique culture is retreating and we are attacked by its twin sister transformed by popculture. It is the one which builds hotels shaped like pyramids or gives birth to Trojan horses standing by the roads. They are what I’m looking for.”

A Curious Question To / Ben McNutt

Where were you going to chill when you were a child and now, where are you going ?

My childhood home is situated on a small farm. My parents encouraged me to go out and explore; both as a device to have a moment of peace and quiet, and as a sort of lesson. I would go out into the forest and sit in the trees, explore, wreak havic, be destructive, and relax. I’m living in the city now but I still apply much of the same rural tendencies as when I was little. I try to find moments and special spots alone to myself where I can do whatever I need to relax, albeit it reading, drawing, or playing with animals.

A Curious Question To / Daniel O’Donnell

What can we find in your head ?

The next adventure is always in my head. I’m constantly thinking of my next destination to explore and experience for my mind, and to portray it in someway through my photography. I’m also always thinking about my next development, whether it be as a person, my art, or my photography.

A Curious Question To / Hanna Ukura

Could you live far from the nature ?

I could. For a while. Never for my entire life though.
And then I would probably need to take daytrips to the forest every now and then just to breath,
smell the vegetation, touch some spruces and sit on moss for a while.

I took this photo while travelling in Brasil with some friends. We went to this really small beach. It was raining and half my friends prefed not to go into the ocean. We had the beach to ourselfs: I took my camera and a plastic bag to cover it and then entered the water.

It was just us, I didn’t feel silly while having my hands up in the air trying not to get the camera wet. It was an easy shot, just us being kids under a summer rain.

This photo was taken while traveling down the coast of portugal in a van with some friends. We found this place by the beach, in between two towns. It rained for most of the night and these eerie factories lit up the sky after the sun went down.

I met the girl in the photo at a rock performance and then we became friend. That day, she and my other friends came over to my place. The weather was very nice, and we went to the tallest building in our area and found out the door to the rooftop was broken, so we went in and wanted to take a look of the city. She was sitting on the chair, the weather was nice, the city was beautiful , she was pretty then I took this shot.

This winter, it snowed a lot in seoul. Every seoul citizen (especially, commuters) finally got sick of severe cold and heavy snow. One night, unexpectedly snowed again. it was 5 inchs. i think i couldn’t sleep well at that night. i came from the southern island which has no chance to see snow. So the coldness is unbearable but i always crazy about only snow. it’s inexorable fantazy from my childhood. i felt in my bones it would be the last snow of this year. and it was.

i called a young girl who just met twice before, i didn’t know why. and we walked by the Han river for 2 hours from early morning. it was strangely bright and warm enough to melt all deep snow instantly. we could easily tell the scream of disappered snow. haha. How beautiful it was! it’s dim sound. so you should listen carefully like that girl did in the photo.
