A jumble of images of the seashore, grassy plains, and dense forests merges into one blurred image on the time-damaged film frame, creating an associative diary of impressions and memory fragments that pass through our minds as unpredictably as waves flowing into each other on the beach.

“A short February sketch from the Baltic coast.”

Author of quote: Peter Podolský
