We draw inspiration from nature. We are in our elements dealing with photography, publications, television, film and stage. The web site presents the activity of Jaroslaw Chyra who in the circle of his experienced and wonderful friends realizes projects based on three steps: get to know nature, take to it, and feel the respect for it as well as the need of protection. Here are the projects which enable you to get to know nature and maybe you will grow fond of it and if so... . All in Your hands! Come in!
WIKTOR WOŁKOW - BOCIAN (STORK)
The fragment from the introduction of the catalogue:
For many, many years Wiktor Wołkow has photographed his beloved Podlasie region (which he aptly calls the most beautiful place in the world), so long that he himself has become fixed element of that scenery. Unlike storks he never leaves Podlasie even for a moment. It is here where in every winter, spring, summer, and autumn his hundreds of frames come into being. That is the effect of many hours of lying in wait for his 'game', that, the only one moment.
(...) The Storks in Wołkowa's view do not become the requisites or decoration, but they are important actors of scenes where space, fog, time of day, sun (his sunrises and sunsets in all stages) colour of air, ground, sky, clouds, and all tints of green, blue and grey play important and equal role. All plans (foreground, background and others) are composed and each, even the furtherst detail in the scene come out for something.(...)
