About ‘Wound Ballistics‘:
I was born and raised in Podlasie (region of Poland) among hunters. The sight of animal blood and the smell of insides left an invisible wound in my subconscious. Despite expectations and the hopes placed in me, I did not follow my father’s footsteps. I could not. I chose my own way away from my family home. A series of events caused that after many years I returned to the place from which I left. Now I am trying to tame the existing reality. Not only for myself, but also for my two sons.
* In broad terms, wound ballistics is the study of the interaction of wounding agents with tissue.
