fragments from a monograph on the pole photographer bolesław okoniewski : los angeles part four (arco iris)

(santa monica & eagle rock)

some recently discovered photographs captured in los angeles by the polish photographer bolesław okoniewski, a trip taken sometime after his attempts to enter into the polish avant-garde collective gówno ptak kurwa rolnik melon (dates uncertain, most likely the 70s). he was denied access to this prestigious group, so he went west.

okoniewski used his camera as if it was a capturer of nothingness.  a blasphemer, a melon farmer, beckett's three-legged giraffe, the big nowhere.....

okoniewski's trip was motivated by the words of horace greeley.
