The project is a photobook titled Wild Oregano on the subject of herbal medicine in Poland. It resulted from my travels in Poland and contains information about medicinal plants and above all, the stories of people who work with herbs. It is also a story about the increasing need for a return to nature. The project was implemented from December 2015 to May 2017 in Poland. The aim was to record in photography the present state of herbal medicine in Poland and related issues – herbalists, making herbal medicines, growing and harvesting medicinal plants. I wanted to save for posterity the people involved in natural medicine and document that which will soon disappear.
