Solo Exhibition of Photographic Project by Andrzej Maciejewski Opens at Sticks Cultural Centre
Weather Report #30, November 27, 2003, 7.15 am, Mostly Cloudy; Temperature: 1°C; Wind: 5.6 km/h, ENE; Pressure: 1023.4 hPa; Humidity: 93%; Visibility: 16 km.
YARKER, ON.- Weather Report contains 36 colour Camera Obscura images of the same place in different weather conditions, taken over a period of one year. The project was realized between May 2003 and May 2004, with support of Ontario Arts Council grant.

Andrzej Maciejewski says that when he had moved from Toronto to the country, he was impressed by how much the changes of the weather became perceptible. “When you are in the country, you really notice the changes of the weather and changes of the seasons” he says. This inspired his project “Weather Report”.
He realized this project when living in Moscow, Ontario. The place he photographed was his house and garden. He chose the frame enclosing the view of the ground and the sky - half and half - which was the best set-up to show the changing weather in full splendour. For “Weather Report” he built a walk-in Camera Obscura. It is about 6x6x10FT large and artist takes pictures with it while being locked inside. Pictures are round which is an effect of including the whole image created by the lens on the film. Artist used 8x10 colour transparency film.

Repetitiveness is one of the features specific for photography. Andrzej Maciejewski has realized several projects experimenting with repetition. “After Notman” – the rephotographs of 19th century Montreal views, “Along My Road”, monthly repeated photographs of ten places along the road, or “Memorial Photographs”, posed self-portraits in different surroundings and seasons. In “Weather Report” repetitiveness suits the topic very well. It is a great challenge to record something so elusive and volatile as weather. Artist managed to do so thanks to fixed frame and thanks to patience and carefulness, which he applied to capture all sorts of weather: light summer rain, heavy shower of fall, sunny noon, foggy sunrise, gloomy sunset. We have 36 photographs of exactly the same place, taken from exactly the same point of view, and yet each of them is different. We can see the changes of seasons and notice how different the same place looks just few months apart – once green and then covered by snow, or just a week apart, once bathed in gold of sunshine and then sad and cringed under the thick layer of storm clouds.

Looking at them we may realize once again how powerful and unbridled nature is. We can hide in houses, with our central heating, umbrellas and cars, but we cannot control the weather. Nature still reigns, over the earth and the sky, showing every day and every single hour beautiful or horrifying spectacle of elements.
