Zamecznik did not take regular pictures of Warsaw. Neither did he document it thoroughly. When he went outside with his camera, he registered views that intrigued him formally, or ones that he could use for his designs and illustrations. Amongst the prints in the artist’s archive, especially captivating are the ones from the Grand Theatre’s and Holy Trinity Church’s construction sites. Individual frames were cropped on paper in various ways; some of them were also printed in exhibition display formats. Some of the other Warsaw themes include typical street photography and the outskirts – most likely in Mokotów, where the artist lived.
