Łódź Photo Festival : Irmina Walczak : Idyllic quarantine


Presented during the portfolios reviews of the Łódź Photo Festival in Poland, this photographic work underlines the singular confinement of the family of a photographer who was able to enjoy the fresh air of the Spanish countryside.

If Irimina Walczak is of Polish origin, she likes the idea of ​​being on the move anywhere and prefers to think of travel than to define herself from a particular place. During lockdown due to the global coronavirus pandemic, she and her family, aboard a motorhome, were forced to pull over in a corner of the countryside in the middle of Spain.

These 95 singular days, at the edge of the fields and of a warm nature were captured by the camera of Irimina Walczak who has the art of magnifying the rays of a soft sun, giving her and her family a tranquility. in the flow of life, securing something of an almost impossible Eden today.

“ Through this work I aim to make visible an experience of going through the Covid-19 quarantine far from a large city, in a rural area, in which contact with nature brings caress, but tension is enhanced by human absence, both visual and audible”, says the photographer.
