The exhibition is the first presentation in Poland of the works of the Norwegian photographer Rune Eraker and also the first exhibition of socially engaged photography at MOCAK. It consists of 73 black-and-white photographs from the series “The Smell of Longing” and two screenings that contain some photographs from the series never shown before.
The photographs presented at the exhibition have been taken since 1988. They document Eraker’s travels in 22 countries, ravished by war, political repression and hunger. They are an attempt to address the reasons why people are forced to abandon their roots and seek shelter abroad.
