Karolina Sekula sent this wonderfully eloquent statement to accompany her series on newly-single women.
"Every year statistics reveal tens of thousands of divorces in Poland. The number becomes even greater when you count in unmarried couples that break up. In 2010 those statistics strangely and unexpectedly started including a large group of my friends and... myself. I began photographing women close to me that recently split up with their life partners, just like I did. All of the photographs were taken in my models' houses, when the first emotions had already been coped with and were replaced by sadness and melancholy."
