Complexities in relationship between people and nature is Kacper Kowalski's ( Poland) the theme-project that undertitled ' Side Effects'. Pilot and photographer Kasper Kowalski's got an award for Long - Term Projects/2nd Prize.
His photos were taken around 150 meters distance from the ground in Poland where Kowalski is been living and working.

His works are giving more attention to ideas which occur as someone look at these instead of a photo shoot. This is way he used to say that ' Side Effects' and that kind of projects in total can possible describe '... more as a method of a visual storytelling than a concrete set of pictures. It is an ongoing project that will continue to be modified...

                                Kacper Kowalski said also in terms of his project the follow:
   ' It is a little as if the viewer is flying together with me, and- just like me during the flight- has no         information about what they are looking at.
    An admiration of form comes before any any understanding of content.'
