Leisure consists of both equally time and place, as well as some idea. Along with the late modernity space and time blurred, and the structure of organized labor forced to create an equally organized structure of free time and getaway.
After season focuses on the backstage of this structure, which produces places suspended in a time. The structured free time industry stops at the end of vacations, emptying. The people had their holidays and for a while all those resorts become unnecessary, frozen and ready to receive the thousands of organized tourists that will come again. This cycle repeats endlessly, and in each of these places you can feel the gentle but still palpable trace of memories of leisure – the idea lacking accurate coordinate and time frames.
Adam Wilkoszarski is a polish documentary/landscape photographer based Poznań, Poland, born in 1986. He graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Photography from University of Arts in Poznań.
In his works, he concentrates on the ways in which places, which are usually full of people, are changing the very moment when they become abandoned and empty. He tries to find places in which the borders between public and private spheres are blurred and he is looking for the signs of disappearing or crossing of those borders.
