sketches of spain

...and other stories

This series first started as a visual landscape journal during a cross-country car trip through Spain.

Influenced by the vast open spaces along the Spanish highways, as well as the serenity of the Spanish countryside, it had a significant impact on my way of seeing things and has affected almost all aspects of my photography, most notably the landscape series.

It made me realize that, on a subconscious level, I have always responded more to moments which shared a similarity – be it a particular type of light, time of day, smell, noise, or a combination of any of those things – with what I experienced as a child while visiting my father’s town in the north of Poland.

The pictures visible here come from the original cross-country car trip through Spain, as well as from other countries such as Croatia, Italy, Canada or Portugal which followed.
