Zacharek is a photographer who combines travel imagery with fine art concepts. Much of her work is based around journeys, and it is the journey, rather than the destination, that provides the inspiration for her projects
Re:Discovery is a collaborative project between Zacharek and her late father. It is a documentary of the same journey taken 26 years apart.
She followed a route based on photographic negatives of her father’s trip to Poland in the late 1980’s, with the hope of learning more about the man who died a few years after the photographs were taken. She travelled to Toruń (her grandfather’s home town) and spent a week there trying to resolve fragmented memories (both her own and borrowed).

This was not a ‘compare & contrast’ assignment. Rather she made the journey in order to stand in the same place she knew her father had previously stood. She was there to point her camera at the same things he took an interest in, to compose and frame the subjects as he did, and in doing so, finally feel a connection with the man she knew so little about.
This is an ongoing project and the artist plans to return to Toruń in the hope of tracing the family members who appear in some of her father’s images.
