This is for you, if at least once you have thought that you would like to have someone like you next to you.

I want to be noticed and appreciated. Achieving success allows you to mark your presence and prove your worth. What I did is not that important. The most important thing is that I was the best at it. The official form of the competition tends to add weight to the prize. I compensate for the shortcomings, collect medals and check with myself whether the amount of things I have already achieved is enough.

The creation process is not always an intentional act. Sometimes we instinctively devote ourselves to semi-conscious activities. By interfering with the materials available at hand, we can completely change their appearance and give a new meaning.

Am I a photographer if I don’t use the camera, don’t control the light, and just press two buttons at the same time to take a screenshot? I wonder about the causative power and distance, cooperation, the power of the moment, taking pictures during video conversations with people forced to stay in confinement. The lifestyle of my heroes caused by the current situation in the world means that the life of the body, activity disappears, man “melts” in the base he manages, which becomes multifunctional.

“I can do things” is a quote from an anonymous source. It can be interpreted in different ways – from a threat, through showing off. The pictures show a multitude of interpretations of this statement – the selected pictures reflect the proverbial ‘I can do things’ found in everyday life situations.
