Poland on the border to Ukraine, March 2022

In the third week of the Russian war, Ludwig Nikulski travels with his large format camera in Poland along the border to Ukraine. An oppressive atmosphere surrounds the actually idyllic places of this region and creates absurd sceneries. Families walk along the lake, while soldiers are stationed in popular vacation accommodations. A border guard says everything has changed. A hotelier says nothing has changed. The war is somehow near and yet commonly far away. Everyday life and exceptional situations meet at the border. Ludwig Nikulski shows places where the war seems to pass by, places where the world could still be in order. And yet it is not.
