My theme is very personal and explores contemporary society explicitly the struggles of being a young Eastern European immigrant in The United Kingdom. I suppressed my Polish identity in order to develop relationships with the British culture and way of life. My biggest wish was to fit in with my peers and not be considered "different". This project is all about me rekindling the flame with my Polish heritage and embracing my dual identity. I visited home town hoping to create a sense of nostalgia and inspire myself with my childhood memories. I’m sure there are a lot of other young individuals in the same position that can relate. I wanted to share these personal location shoots from my hometown and where I grew up to over exaggerate the perception people might have of Poland and give an insight to my childhood while now myself feeling a bit like an outsider while doing so.
