‘Lost Place’ tells the story about Metanoia, the Catholic Centre for Education and Addiction Therapy. The facility helps young people addicted to drugs and alcohol.
Located in the Knyszynska Forest in Poland, it occupies the former administration building Agroma factories which, in the past, produced agricultural machinery, home appliances, and likely also weapons.
This is a place without an address, in the middle of the woods. The walls of the forgotten fabric make it so hard to see. Make it invisible.
This is the place, where some people have found their asylum. Without old thoughts, buddies and drugs.
Kamil Śleszyński (1982) – self-taught documentary photographer, author of photo books. Co-founder of Światło/siła Foundation. His work focuses on complex topics related to social isolation and identity. He lives and works in Podlasie, Poland.
