Gabriel Orłowski: Anti-accent
"I don’t really want to know whether the characters read beatniks, nihilists, right-wing journalists, liberal gibberish or SF writers. Neither do I feel the need to identify them with the music they listen to. We can guess that they probably don’t listen to club music, for example (although they seem to enjoy the disco ball)."

"I think that Anti-accent, even though it portrays people involved in the 'punk scene', with all their artistic influences, this aforementioned 'fall' of the ideas has a marginal meaning. These photographs 'are punk' more than they 'show punk'. They seem to rather invite you to 'punk', than guide you through all the sweaty rehearsal rooms. 'Punk' understood as a certain idea, an ethos, a rebellion, showing your bruised ass off to the middle-class conventions. 'Punk' that pushes you into action, that has you co-create a community. So, not to repeat anything, Anti-accent rather is a rehearsal room, than shows you one. A rehearsal room that’s familiar to anyone, who doesn’t come back home before the evening cartoons. These photographs seem to come alive with whatever we put into them ourselves." – Mateusz Romanowski
