Description

In The First March of Gentlemen, Rafal Milach creates a fictitious narrative composed of authentic stories. He retells the historical childrens’ strike in Września in Poland from the early 20th Century, through collaged archive photographs from the 1950s and 1960. By blending these elements, he has created a new narrative, to be read as a playful metaphor for the political situation of the present. This project was created by the Deutsche Borse shortlisted photographer on the Kolekcja Września residency programme in 2016.
