Hourglass is the photobook with pictures from the almost non-verbal solo performance of Teatr A PART entitled Klepsydra (Hourglass) , directed by Marcin Herich in execution by Monika Wachowicz. This is the theater of the body, gesture and emotion with elements of dance. The word "klepsydra" in Polish language has two significances. It means "an hourglass", but also "obituary notice".
The book contain my photos from Szopienice. This is a Katowice district, the city on the Upper Silesia, in Poland. To 1960 it was independent. Szopienice was founded as a village in 1360 and it was developed in the second half of the nineteenth century around the metallurgy industry. The civic rights was given to them in 1951. I photographed Szopienice in the spring of 2003.
