Print description

Nowa Huta was exceptionally fortunate as it was home to a multitude of excellent photographers. Some of them had been resident in the district almost from the first day of its creation. Others were attracted by ‘constructionalism’ or simply were given a flat here. Even more photographers followed, in order to fulfil the assignments of the editorial offices or to find interesting topics, plenty of which Nowa Huta had to offer.

Nowa Huta was exceptionally fortunate as it was home to a multitude of excellent photographers. Some of them had been resident in the district almost from the first day of its creation. Others were attracted by ‘constructionalism’ or simply were given a flat here. Even more photographers followed, in order to fulfil the assignments of the editorial offices or to find interesting topics, plenty of which Nowa Huta had to offer. Great construction, huge migration, visits of official delegations, social events and scenes from everyday life — all this had to be immortalized through the lens.
The picture presented here is the work of Stanisław Gawliński — one of the most important of Nowa Huta's photographers. As an employee of the local newspaper — “Głos Nowej Huty” — and the internal, “Biuletyn Huty im. Lenina”, he had a unique opportunity to register many important events in the district's life (his works were often their only documentation).
In the photograph, we can see the church of St. Maksymilian Kolbe in Mistrzejowice. The building was still under construction, as evidenced by building materials lying around. Soon after, on 22 June 1983, during his second pilgrimage to Poland and his last visit to Nowa Huta, Pope John Paul II would dedicate the church.
