The World Library of Sanne and Lukas is a visual library documenting subjects in various places and times. Its encyclopedic character emerges from a method developed by the photographers to explore unfamiliar themes. They introduce this new library with Nowa Huta IMG. 0 — 97, with more elements to follow regularly.
“The two photographers explore the world of ‘Nowa Huta’, which once celebrated the future but now belongs to the past.
The interest of the two photographers does not lie in revealing the underlying architectural concept of Nowa Huta and deciphering its topography at once. Instead, by making precise observations of details, they give us an indication of the overall meaning. What is paramount is the fragmented view, from which a full picture emerges.’
