Zofia Chomętowska. Polesie, published by the APF, is the first major presentation of one of the most important Polish women photographers of the first half of the 20th century. The book, with over two hundred photographs, most of them never published before, and essays by Ewa Klekot, Wojciech Śleszyński, and Karolina Puchała-Rojek, is an attempt both to verify Chomętowska’s early work as well as to redefine the prewar photography of Polesie and, more broadly, the Second Polish Republic’s eastern borderlands.
Photographing the life of Polesie from a personal perspective, marked by her class background and individual experience, Zofia Chomętowska emerges in the book as a reporter of daily life, fully revealing her talent in photographs never published before.
Exhibition and publication co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland.
