The summer ended, but it remains in our memory most clearly. Even though the photographs included in the book come from different periods, they are linked by a common, nostalgic mood.
Regardless of the passage of time, we remember summer holidays in a similar way. Time influences the shape of our memories, and it doesn’t spare photographic materials, exposing their fleeting nature mercilessly. In idyllic photographs there appears rapture.
All photographs come from the author’s family archive and were taken between 1928-1990.
“Without following any chronological order, Babie Lato doesn’t try to tell a specific story, more it transports a nostalgic feeling of this special period of time. Depicting the raw photographic material, like negatives and DIA-Slides and pages of the original album, all of them are marked to some level of wear and tear – their shape changed together with the memories.” (Sören Schuhmacher, Lost in Publications)
“The form of the book itself corresponds well to the pictures. Its unsophisticated design is underlined by the webbing string, cardboard cover and coarse uncoated offset paper on which the reproductions are printed.” (Rafał Milach, The books I love)
