Metanoia, photo essay by Kamil Sleszynski
The Catholic Centre for Education and Addiction Therapy Metanoia exists since 2000. The facility helps young people addicted to drugs and alcohol. Located in the Knyszynska Forest (Poland), occupies the former administration building Agroma – plants which in the past produced agricultural machinery, home appliances, and probably also weapons… Unfortunately the resort is in poor condition. If by the end of the year does not collect money for repairs, will be closed.
There is some place. Without an address. In the middle of the wood. The walls of the forgotten fabric make it so hard to see. Make it invisible. This is the place, where some kind of people found their asylum. This people couldn’t agree with the world. But they really want to. They want to be noticed, appreciated, they want to be loved. They want to feel safe, and start to live on they own way. Without old schematics, buddies, drugs. Converted. Converted for the new way, which help them to leave this place without an address. And this place will help them to make it happend.
