‘We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfilment’ Hilaire Belloc
Photography and travel
I keep going back to these landscapes from the Moroccan desert. when I took them in October 2007, I was in a constant state of flux. Migrating from Poland to the UK has been quite a cultural change for me, but there I was craving another adventure, wanting to see what’s behind the next corner. Welcome to the life of a migrant.
Travel is a beautiful thing to do, and privileged thing to do. While travelling, you have a feeling of being alive; you experience events that will make you humble and appreciative of life, events and cultural interactions that will challenge you and make grateful for all these learning opportunities. It’s a funny thing to say but, over the years, traveling kept me grounded, more mindful of the world and people around me, also inspired and focused on my passion for photography.
I think I also discovered the word ‘peripatetic’ when researching titles for my photography exhibition few years ago titled Transient.
travelling from place to place, in particular working or based in various places for relatively short periods.“the peripatetic nature of military life”
(of a teacher) working in more than one school or college.“a peripatetic music teacher”
