Rooms of the Missing

Rooms of the Missing, a moving photographic exhibition on display at the Skwer gallery in Warsaw, has been organized to encourage the public to offer greater support to people whose family members have gone missing. The exhibited photographs were taken in rooms where missing people used to live and where time has stood still—despite in some instances not having seen their loved ones for more than a decade, desperate families refuse to give up, hoping that they will return home one day.

The photographs were taken by Karolina Jonderko, a graduate of the Warsaw Film School and the winner of numerous prizes and awards. Her works have been shown in Poland, Germany, Portugal, England and France. The exhibition in Warsaw is part of a larger project entitled Lost. “Only somebody who has lost a loved one can imagine the pain suffered by the families of missing people, the years they spend balancing between hope and the sense of loss,” said Jonderko. “Very often the families leave the rooms of missing people unchanged in the hope they will be back one day. Sometimes it takes a couple of months and sometimes years.”

The exhibition will be shown in other Polish cities between February and June. It is curated by Filip Ćwik, a photojournalist from Newsweek Polska magazine. The organizer is the Itaka Center for Missing People.
