Album – Photobook

One of the most surprising discoveries in Wojciech Zamecznik’s archive is a photo album which resembles an incomplete photo-book dummy. It is possible that it was never intended for print, but was simply conceived as a traditional photo-book. It was most definitely made in the early 1950s. Most photographs are family shots, but one will also find staged self-portraits and compositions that could be described as “formal explorations.” Even though it is impossible to reconstruct the original narration, due to, for instance, a number of missing sheets, it is noticeable that the pages were compiled in such a way so as to prompt visual associations.
