Please join us in the Bookshop and meet photographer Łukasz Rusznica who is presenting his new photobook Subterranean River, published by Palm*.
On his Japanese journey, Łukasz Rusznica chose spirits and other supernatural creatures as his guides. He asked them for helping mapping a new territory, and appears to have received an additional gift: a discovery about oneself and one’s own background, which seems to be the actual journey here: a more significant one than conquering purely physical distance. Along with the evolution of societies, rising unpredictability, mobility and dependence on technologies, the folk spirituality evolves into lived spirituality – one which may appear unorthodox, but relies on direct experience and presence of the divine element in common surroundings.(From the accompanying text by Olga Drenda)
Łukasz Rusznica is a Polish photographer and curator. He graduated from Cultural Studies of the University of Wrocław. He is an author of a few photobooks i.e. Near, Infra, European Eyes on Japan vol. 18, The Most Important I Do Not Tell You At All, an intimate and strong queer book designed by Thomas Schostock.
