    Pawel Mlodkowski, Poland

60% of Poland’s area is covered by arable lands forming a
remarkably varied patchwork. Fields and meadows be an
interesting object for a flying (paragliding) photographer. Colors,
shapes and textures usually form completely abstract images. But
they can be sometimes similar to something or someone. They
keep provoking a play of associations.

Pawel Mlodkowski - born in 1975, photographer and paraglider pilot whose passion and specialism is aerial photography.

Since 2005 he has been focused on projects which show human activity seen from a bird's eye view ("Fields of soul” and „Aesthetics of destruction”).
The results of farming and industrial activity unexpectedly gain another dimension and start to look more like paintings.
The earth seems to be a living canvas painted by a number of anonymous artists. And the same piece of land seems to change all the time regarding its shape and colour.
