Anita Andrzejewska travels a lot. However, the viewers will find more of „being” than of travel in her works, more meetings, intimacy, time and focus on another human being, than of the journalistic verve, temporariness or rush. Over the years, Andrzejewska has developed her unique manner of photographing. Most of the photographs comprising the “Slowly” series were taken in Burma (Myanmar), at the verge of important social changes, during a very tumultuous episode of the country’s history, but the majority of them are timeless. The viewer could even believe, that some of them were created decades earlier.
In the series of works, we notice the themes Andrzejewska likes best: portraits – records of meetings and conversations; land scapes – allowing to attach the images to a specific location; finally still lives and details – fragments of everyday life, perfect comple ment of history. The history which has been happening invariably and unceasingly, before the photographer arrived, during the time when Anita was taking her photos and the history which continues unchanged, after the woman with camera has left. Slowly.
