Artist statement:

This is from a long term series that I produced whilst traveling in Poland and Ukraine. I had won the Jack Jackson Memorial Award and travelled to the region to document the impact of child poverty and mortality in underfunded industrial areas of Poland around Nova Huta.
I went up country to get away from some of the challenging work I was documenting, being out of the industrial zones and hospitals meant I could put space between myself and the project. This image appealed to me as a kind of gentle foil to the other work.
