Displacement, Flight, Isolation, Fragmentation. Fleeting disassociation. These are the groundbreaking photographic tropes established by Robert Frank in his landmark book The Americans. Now, more than four decades later, the same ground is rediscovered - again from an immigrant's status, but more tightly focused: that of the all too well known city of cities, New York. Polish-born Zulawinski came to these shores shortly after the Wall fell and began shooting. He dived head first into the rushing torrents of peopled movement, pausing long enough to silce exquisitely rendered compositions from its torric daily flow. Much like Frank before him, Zulawinski rabs the uncommon moment - a thoughtless hand gesture, a temporal fiick of light, a carnival-of-the-streets grotesquerie - and sews them in fashion, American-like, to form a lyrical sequence of imagistic melancholy, surprise and abancon. The sum is wanderlust redux, albeit from a perspective 40 years wiser, but as many years still lost.
