The cheesy postcard-like pictures and the corny American photos which used to dominate the magazines of United States back in the years of 1950s and 1960s have got a unique twist by polish artist Weronika Gesicka. Weronika Gesicka is a polish visual artist, but her main field of activity is photography. She is a graduate of the department of Graphics of the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Weronika Gesicka is interested in the mnemonics, scientific theories, pseudoscientific theories, and various disorders concerning it. As a matter of fact, she also has a deep curiosity towards the process of forgetting and memorizing.
Polish artists aren’t strangers to surreal. Check out the below pictures which represent a darker side of the modern society.
