the Sail

“Dar Młodzieży” the three-masted sail training ship was built in 1982, designed by Zygmunt Choreń. The XXc. fregatta reminds working clippers from two hundreds years before. The ship is 108 meters long and has the incredible sail area of 3015 m2.
The sail with the wet collodion equipment started from Göteborg, ended in Gdynia and took 6 days. It was hard&challenge time for me (5h of sleep, working during sea shifts and solving the problems with collodion chemistry), but I could manage. The chemicals pictures are important part of my a long term documentary work: “How people travel in the XIXc”
