This artistic photograph by Jan Motyka presents Wawel outlined with a white line, a side elevation of the Wawel cathedral with the Silver Bells’ Tower, Wawel itself, and Sigismund’s chapel. In the foreground, two men are standing in the alley; one is standing in front of the easel; he is looking with folded arms, the other is leaning. The photograph was made using the pseudo-solarization technique, based on a negative image that has been sufficiently overexposed to make the image partially positive. The author has thereby achieved an interesting aesthetic effect.
Jan Motyka often photographed Kraków; it is one of the most common motifs on his photographs, including in the “My city” cycle. The Museum of Photography in Kraków collections contain a series of his photographic views of Kraków. In this case, he photographed a painter who has immortalized the same motif as the photographer — Wawel cathedral.
