The American Woman, a book of Zofia Chomętowska’s photographs in the interpretation of Jakub Śwircz and Kuba Dąbrowski. The publication resembles a small notebook that can be browsed with casual pleasure. The visual material, never published before, shows fragments of prewar Poland’s daily life.

‘Zofia Chomętowska wasn’t American. That’s obvious. Poland was never America. That’s also true. But that’s not what we mean. America is simply far away and during Chomętowska’s times it was even farther. But it has always been a country full of photographs, of a need for visual representation, for photographing everything. As a result, it stirred the imagination more easily’

The publication as a part of the Living Archives project, co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.
