Polish photographer Dariusz Klimczak applies his photo manipulation skills to carefully construct surreal landscapes filled with patterns. The recurring sequence of shapes and forms in Klimczak’s aptly titled series Patterns include both complex, irregular visual schemes and clean, symmetrical patterns that are indescribably pleasing to browse through.

“Parallelism with the famous novel “Alice in Wonderland” by Lewis Carroll is immediate. It transports us to a world of mixed feelings where imagination and reality, work and play, fun and responsibility are combined. A world of sensations, experiences, sets of scales and color are perceived by the eyes of children, coexisting with adults, making necessary to use a dual scale adapted to each of them. But not only the scale must be adapted, also the space perception. Due to this reason, we consider essential thinking from inside the building. First of all, the central space works as a public space covered where you can access to all classrooms. It is a smooth space with items that enhance visual and tactile perception: the circular courtyard, that introduces outside to inside; the deep cover skylights larger than 2 meters of height that introduce a world of color; the access to the classrooms with partitions unfolded and deep windows that work as a individual spaces and allow to the children enter inside. These are resources that enhance haptic space against a purely visual space.”
