My photography Is first and foremost concentrated on the memory and the emotional ties between people and space.
The “Promised Land” is a journey depicting my personal experiences as seen through an immigrants vision of the USA as I travel across 48 states.
Siphoning the landscape the people, capturing and defying images allowing people to appreciate what they like not what society influences. I'm eager to create a world how I see it being mentally stimulated by my thoughts with the help of a lens, taking portraits and capturing the beauty out of the less ordinary.
Well that was all good and said until I was involved in a accident which totaled my van left me without a scratch, but has since left a pause on the journey, which is why I'm on Kickstarter to acquire the funds together to get another used vehicle plus contribute basic day to day living essentials and by basic I mean basic as the vehicle will once again be my home on wheels.
Once the project is complete, the funds raised and saved with the support of kick-starter will help in publishing a few hundred pages book. The book will contain a variety of images that will hopefully unconsciously leave a lasting impression, in the mind of the reader. Also if permitting I will prepare a traveling exhibition. If this project sounds like something you would like to see completed then the rest is up to you. Please be sure to check my website;http://andrzejkramarz.com/catalogue
While living in Hawaii I was doing the “Invisible Maps” – project that has formalized the experience of coming to know more about my adopted country in a series of multi media portraits.
Realizing the "Home” project (with Weronika Łodzińska) in various countries. I portrayed people – monks, the homeless, circus performers, truck drivers – through the medium of their “domesticated” living spaces.
The “Piece of Land” was a project focused on the traumatic experience, during WWII in Poland and the Ukraine. These silent landscapes came into life again thanks to the voices of war witnesses.
The “Promised Land” is a insight to my everyday living participating and recognizing between landscape. What kind of meanings do we create to domesticate the space?
Risks and challenges
My challenge would be to have enough backers to get this project going, my pledges will need to be sorted and organized in timely and efficient manner, but at this point I'm determined and motivated to get promised land on the road and the book published.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
