Trips to Poland : 2007 -2019 (Part one)

First time i went to Poland was in May 2007. Since then i am going every year and I always shoot 2-3 rolls of film.
This is a selection of some pictures taken over the last 12 years. In this post I will include only the ones in portrait orientation - later on i will make another post with the landscape orientation ones too.


Second part can be found here: https://rangefinderforum.com/forums/...hreadid=170111


I hope you enjoy them.

I didn't know this one, Cartier-Bresson could have done it.

Thank you very much Erik, that is high praise indeed.
Once I found a picture in Magnum Archives taken in that street - I think it was Bruno Barbey but I am not sure. I cannot find it now on their website.

Interesting thread, thanks . Twelve years are a long period, I imagine the country and its people changed a lot. I like the way you include people in the envronment. Clearly you have much respect for your subjects, I appreciate this very much. And specially in the interior the use of the available light adds interest and mood to the photos. Well done, thanks again.

This is excellent work Pan, I enjoy and admire your photos.


Never been there, but what really impress me about Poland is how photographically "clean" is the street environment. No external electrical cables, no graffiti on the walls, no ad posters and signs, no garbage, no damaged walls and pavements. It is like a set theater stage, you only have to choose your "actors".

Or, you are so careful when shooting on the streets, -one more reason to admire your photos.

I also noted this image. I am envious....not only is it well composed and aesthetic/artistic, it is an example of great skill. I wish I could expose film in interiors so perfectly.

Thank you Elia for your comments, Polish people are proud of their cities and seem to be taking good care of them.

Thank you very much! I wish I knew how to expose film that well too, I am lucky that the Nikon F5 can.

No pictures of Cartier-Bresson from Poland later than 1931 (taken with his Krauss Eka). Unfortunately.

Erik.

I did manage to find the picture: It is this one taken by Bruno Barbey. It is in the same spot.
