Michal Solarski + Tomasz Liboska, ‘Untitled #176’, 2013, Pictura Gallery

The title 'Cut it Short' refers to the old tradition in Slavic cultures called 'Postrzyzyny'. Young boys have their hair cut in order for them to enter society, a 'coming of age' of sorts. The custom is still being practiced in some circles as a kind of symbol of obeying the rules.
It's an autobiographical story about transition between boyhood and adulthood, about friendship, and the passing of time.
