THE PROMISED LAND photo exibition of Tomek Sikora

THE PROMISED LANDIt is a story of Australian landscapes, of open spaces and of monuments made by man: houses, huts, electricity posts, railways.These monuments are fragile, perishable.They are yet another proof of our arrogance to the power of nature.The infinity of Australian landscapes and their apparent emptiness provokes a more profound observation of the smaller elements of the surrounding microworld whose richness shows us a magical zone. This microworld will outlive us all.These impressions come from my 18 000 km long journey through the Promised Land. Tom Sikora.
