St Mary street is one of the main streets of central Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. A city as any other in the UK.

But from the standpoint of the heroes of these photographs, they most fully describe their daily lives. Gathered in one place
they give a view of the changes which we witnessed, or maybe just me ...(...)
The young artist from Cracow, starting from 25th September 2009, climbed one tree a day for the whole
following year. It is the origin of the cycle 365 Trees, inspired by Italo Calvino’s novel "The Baron in the Trees"
from 1957. "The project lasted exactly a year, i.e. 365 days, when I climbed up 365 trees, a different tree
each time. Not only is it my diary, but also my private rebellion, a small protest", writes the artist
