Maciek (Matthias in Latin) works as a technical assistant at the printmaking workshop at the Faculty of Graphic Arts, Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw. Being one of the most popular and vibrant personalities on the Faculty, he is one of its defining pillars and a strong and supportive presence among students. For the assignment at the photography course, I decided to portray him as sort of a god-like, superhero figure, with the printmaking roller his own Mjölnir. It's an inside joke and a play on his everyday personality - Maciek is one of the most positive and peaceful humans that I know - but also an homage to the impressive skill, knowledge, and just pure love towards the craft of printmaking emanating from him.
