Rosalind Solomon made her first pictures in Poland in 1988 during a time of political change, and returned there in 2003, a time of increasing violence and inhumanity in the world. All of the images are of individuals, their relationships and environments and are observations and commentaries on Poland itself, and are a touchstone to events in the rest of the world. Polish Shadow evokes the darkness of an earlier era and recalls the ghosts of ethnic violence, but also gives a human view of modern Poland.
