Paweł’s photographic cycle focuses on the relation in between an idol and his fans/believers/audience. Despite thepresence of nowadays media, who are said to shorten the distance in between the sender and the receiver, it’s the spacein between them that brings an idol to life and becomes his inseparable attribute, states his position on the social ladderand keeps the masses in constant hunger that sharpens their appetite to be close to the “cult object”. Distance is thevocal attribute for anyone who wants to gather the attention of the public and their tool in the self creation process.Distance as a cycle does not focus on any actual idol, what’s more, it doesn’t even explore thee world of music alone.The detailed narration cane be created by the viewer himself.
