This bilingual (Polish and English) album features the earliest and least known artistic work of Zdzislaw Beksinski - photography, with which he remained fascinated almost throughout the 1950s. Although the famous visionary artist consistently disparaged his juvenile fling with photography later in life, his earliest work is appreciated by art critics and academics alike.
The text by Wieslaw Banach provides a systematic analysis of the motifs and formal elements in Beksinski's work (e.g. portrait, nude, expressionistic, abstract, montage), and has been arranged according to the original graphic design by professor Lech Majewski. The album is abundantly illustrated with never before published photographs, made available courtesy of the Historical Museum in Sanok and the National Museum in Wroclaw.
