The artist writes:

Ikarus Total is the outcome of more than three years of my activities in documenting every single Ikarus bendy bus in Waraw manufactured between 1982 and 1991. Each of them has its own number, each has its own history. There are more than five hundred such buses. The oldest of them remember martial law, then they served passengers in Warsaw during the democratic transition in 1989, and continue to serve us today, when we are part of the EU. Every month, some of them are withdrawn from service. The Ikarus generation is facing extinction. The black and white photos mark buses whose journey came to an end while the documentation was gathered.
