    From Uranium

Michał Sierakowski

From the 1950s the Sudetes mountain range that runs through Germany, Czech Republic and south-west Poland served as one of the major sources of uranium for the Soviet Union until they were completely drained by the 1990s. Michał Sierakowski digs up this history of human overexploitation of nature in Uranium. Sierakowski only completed his BA in Photography at University of Arts in Poznań, Poland in 2015 but has already been awarded the Lensculture Emerging talent award. Influenced by the Dusseldorf School of Photography and shot on a large format camera, Sierakowski's stoic landscapes hide much more than they reveal.
