The Bar Mleczny is a home cooking cafeteria that was very popular during the communist era in Poland. The photographs show relics of an abandoned place, where humans left their traces without being visible themselves. A second series of photos presents the customers in a reduced and desolate setting. The book is printed on various papers of different grammages and in four different sizes. It is complemented by a film that enters into a dialogue with the photographs, showing customers having a meal.
