The Border: Across the Vistula Spit (“Baltic Spit”) runs the border between Poland (Pomeranian Voivodeship) and Russia (Kaliningrad Oblast). The Vistula Spit is a narrow headland (spit) about 70 km long and a few hundred meters wide (largest width 1.8 km), which runs in a northeasterly direction and separates the Vistula Lagoon from the open Baltic Sea (Gdansk Bay). Borders not only cut up landscapes and limit a piece of land; they also limit the endless territories of the imagination and create restricted cognitive maps.

There is often a deep meaning behind a simple form. Simple things look especially when you focus on them. The photographer focuses our attention and we find the meaning in a place where we have not seen it before. We focus on the fact that we have not noticed before. It is a great power of the artist to find something obvious but at the same time invisible to the majority. The main task of the project is to show the magic of a simple form.
