    From Alexander

Michał Siarek

Polish documentary photographer Michał Siarek is one of the youngest shortlisted hopefuls for the New East Photo Prize, currently completing his studies at the The Leon Schiller National Higher School of Film, Television and Theatre in Łódź. He’s dedicated the past five years to documenting the costly revamp of Macedonia’s capital, Skopje, including the erection of a controversial new 25-metre tall statue of Alexander the Great. Alexander questions who owns an antiquity that’s not only pertinent to Macedonia but the rest of Europe.
