The Mechanism album is a photographic story of Mariusz Forecki talking about the metamorphosis of Polish society in the years 1989 – 2019. The album begins in 1988 with photos, or rather small insights showing the purchase of apples by the British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher in Hala Mirowska in Warsaw. On the pictures taken a year later we can see the last PZPR congress in the congress hall of the Palace of Culture and Science in Warsaw. Next to it, we see photos of the beginnings of capitalism emerging at urban marketplaces. The photos are arranged in a story significant for the Polish community.
For those who haven’t seen, forgotten or just want to know.
