In Podlachia one of the cleanest regions in Poland for many generations locals have been gathering medicinal plants wildly-growing herbs. They pick flowers and leaves,dig for roots and peel branches for bark. They?re often bothered by heat, pestered by mosquitoes, they need to remain in a bent position for many hours at a stretch, and then they must carry back everything they?ve gathered. Alas, there are very few real gatherers left they?re mostly elderly people that have been harvesting herbs from the wild for several dozen years now. My goal was to save their fading figures from oblivion.
