Entry Description

Since 2008 I document my family city, Zabrze, located in Upper Silesian region of Poland. Since 2013 I started to look at it in different way - by the night and usually from high locations (roofs and staircase windows). My city isn't usually considered attractive, but my night shots allowed to find it beautiful by many people. Zabrze is informally called "city of brick towers" due to the fact of relatively large concentration of historic water towers in one city. In addition, churches towers add to this view. Therefore, many of these brick towers can be found on my night documents.
