The aim of this publication is to draw attention to the documentary oeuvre of Marek Piasecki (1935-2011), artist, graphic designer, author of installations, heliographs and miniatures, member of the Second Krakow Group. The book comprises a selection of 150 photographs, based on Piasecki’s archive of negatives digitized by the Archeology of Photography Foundation since 2016. While some of the images within the selection are his well-known photojournalistic photographs, the majority are previously unpublished images.
We would like to invite you to familiarize yourself with the latest publication accompanying the exhibition Sława Harasymowicz, The Bay.
The point of departure for the project of Sława Harasymowicz is a tragedy that took place in the closing days of World War II, in Neustadt Bay, near Lübeck. Prisoners evacuated from the Neuengamme concentration camp lost their lives in the bombardment of three German ships by the RAF; among those who perished was the artist’s great-uncle, Marian Górkiewicz.
