Photographer's Note

Nothing special from Warsaw.
Frying pan - the common name of the square located close to the southern exits from the Centrum metro station. It is an irregularly shaped space lined with cobblestones, located below the street level, between Marszałkowska street, Dmowskiego roundabout and Aleje Jerozolimskie. From the south and east, it is limited by retaining walls decorated with murals.

The frying pan was built in 1998 as a temporary solution until the development of the very center of Warsaw - the local spatial development plan provides for "the [...] construction of a spatial dominant building - an object with a distinctive form" with the preservation of the underground square.

The square is the place of happenings, artistic performances, promotional and charity campaigns. One can see there rather strange personages, street artists. The murals are painted by the professional artists and are oftenchanged, I suppose every month. Interesting place to see the street life.

Those who were in Warsaw can recognize the place here.
