Cut it Short

by Tomasz Liboska | Michal Solarski




First edition first impression in new condition, signed by both Michal Solarski and Tomasz Liboska to title page. 

Cut It Short is a collaboration between photographers Michal Solarski and Tomasz Liboska. It is a visual reconstruction of their youth spent in a little town in Southern Poland. It is an autobiographical story about transition between boyhood and adulthood, about friendship, and the passing of time. The title Cut It Short refers to the old tradition in Slavic cultures called Postrzyzyny. Young boys have their hair cut in order for them to enter society, a coming of age of sorts. The custom is still being practiced in some circles as a kind of symbol of obeying the rules.
