[O]UT is the new book from acclaimed Polish photographer Maciej Nabrdalik, it features a series of portraits of Poland’s queer community alongside quotes and interviews that give poignant insight into LGBTQ life in a country where attitudes fluctuate from progressive to hostile. The portraits themselves are reflective of passport photos – a symbol of belonging and citizenship.
Collectively, the images and quotes describe a vibrant diverse community that contains nuanced relationships to identity and sexuality. As Nabrdalik describes, “this is a portrait of Poland in all its complexity… how these individuals feel and what they are afraid of is not only about them; it is about all of us.”
