Decalogue of different

This is a story about different backgrounds, or how a background makes things different. About different faces of the same thing. But also about my background of Polish appartment blocks… And the background of Kieslowski’s „Dekalog”. (I took the pictures for this project in Warsaw’s Inflancka street where the „Dekalog” was filmed).
In Kieślowski’s series of ten films, ten different stories are crossing in the same architectural background. Kieślowski paraphrases the Ten Commandments with „his” Dekalog. I did it my way through different versions of the same image and I’ve called it: ” Decalogue of different „.
