The photograph shows four people: two women, a man, and a boy. They look at the excavator digging the soil out for the foundations and loading it onto the truck. On the right, there is a young woman wearing a braid with a briefcase in her hand, standing with her back turned on the right side of the frame, and a man in a suit.

The photograph shows four people: two women, a man, and a boy. They look at the excavator digging the soil out for the foundations and loading it onto the truck. On the right, there is a young woman wearing a braid with a briefcase in her hand, standing with her back turned on the right side of the frame, and a man in a suit. On the left, we can see an old woman, wearing a dark headscarf, and a boy, sitting on a beam. It is worth paying attention to the excavator, a block of flats, and the human figures with their backs turned in the foreground; they express the idea that the construction of the housing estate applies to all generations. In the background, the blocks of Nowa Huta are visible. However, Barthes’ punctum is formed by the young woman’s braid and the briefcase in her hand. Is this a move towards individualism? 
The characters included in the photograph may belong to one family, which gathered at the construction site to watch the work progress.
On the reverse of the photograph, the author has marked his signature with the black, ink stamp: “Wiesław Tomaszkiewicz/P.O. BOX. 80/30-965 Kraków 69”, and along the upper edge, there is a note in pencil: “NOWA HUTA—CONSTRUCTION OF A HOUSING ESTATE”. The MuFo collections contain numerous views of a housing estate in Nowa Huta, images of Nowa Huta through the lens of Wiesław Tomaszkiewicz, as well as many other photos by this renowned photographer and cinematographer.

The collection of the Museum of Photography in Kraków contains many photos by the renowned photographer and cinematographer, Wiesław Tomaszkiewicz. He was born on 1 July 1924 in Nowy Sącz and died in 2009. He was a master of Oriental Philology, a cinematographer — he took photos for documentary films — a photographer, a mountaineer and an amateur radioman. His collection of photographs contains almost 54,000 photos, from 1939 to 1990. The oldest photographs show occupied Kraków and the Tomaszkiewicz family.
A significant number of the pictures depict mountaineering, off-road car and motorcycle rallies, movie sets, landscapes, and Polish architecture. Climbing was his passion; already, during World War II, he had been closely associated with the Kraków group of Pokutniks (climbing the rocks near Kraków). He practiced climbing in the first years after the war, in 1948, also in winter. He is the author of photography for many TV programmes related to the Tatra Mountains, Zakopane, Podhale, and the Beskids. The Museum of Photography stores a series of photos, including: Kalwaria Zebrzydowska (1955–1965), Motorcycles in the square (1950–1969), a portrait of Epifaniusz Drowniak (Nikifor).
