The internet, despite being widely available, as a virtual entity remains elusive. Its visualisation (what we know as the internet) is a collection of blue images, implicating digital modernity. Underneath those notions, however, hide addresses of companies that provide services and management of the internet.
Following them, I found the real locations of such companies in Poland. The dissonance between virtual visions and the actual, physical forms of those places has become the subject of my research. My book Internety (The Internets) is a collection of photographs documenting this project. Sales of internet services or computers do not require flashy headquarters. Most of the places I photographed belong to the realm of shadow architecture: they are holed up in booth, barracks, and old buildings. - Szymon Rogiński
