I Just Miss my Husband

Magdalena Wdowicz-Wierzbowska

EUR 22.00

“Each of us would like to ask different people ‘what is it like when…’ Not always it is proper, not always we are brave enough. We’re not sure whether our curiosity can make someone upset. Magdalena Wdowicz-Wierzbowska asks for us. Widows of different ages. She also takes pictures of them. In my opinion, her photographs and texts admirably express the emptiness and loneliness. They are pictures of absence.”

Mariusz Szczygiel


Magdalena Wdowicz-Wierzbowska’s photo book immediately attracts attention: hard, solid black cover, girdled with a red ribbon with the title printed on. It is difficult to resist the thought that this is a book, which will require attention from the readers. And that is the case.

Magdalena’s debut album tells about widows, their sorrows and experiences connected with their life partners’ death. Unhurried, clack and white photographs reveal piece by piece 20 stories talking about love and the need for closeness of other people. Even after they have gone. These 20 stories prove how much simple events matter in life, and how important it is to enjoy every single moment and share it with our beloved person.

It is a very personal album. Magda started working on this album after her father’s death and the contacts with the widows quickly became a part of therapy after the loss and partly – an attempt to familiarise with death.
