SEPIA-TINTED WARSAW. THE TOWN AND PEOPLE THROUGH THE LENSES OF NINETEENTH-CENTURY PHOTOGRAPHERS
Languages of publication
The “Sepia-tinted Warsaw” exhibition was an unforgettable journey along the trail of the first Polish photographers, including Karol Beyer, Marcin Olszyński, Konrad Brandl, and Jan Mieczkowski. Old photographs showed how Warsaw, its houses, residential and public interiors, streets, squares and the inhabitants changed in the course of several decades during the the second half of the nineteenth century. They also recalled the patriotic demonstrations of 1861, the local Bohemia and the stars of the dramatic theatres and the Opera. The host of the exhibition was the Library of the capital city of Warsaw, which collects photographs from the time of its establishment in 1907.
