Photographic Memory. Photographs from the Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz Family Album in the Archive of the Museum in Stawisko
Languages of publication
Collections of the Anna and Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz Museum in Stawisko, established in the house in which the writer and his family lived for over 50 years, possess, apart from valuable manuscripts, artworks, and everyday objects also a capacious collection of photographs dating from 1860–1980. The topic of this article is an analysis of four selected albums of photographs of the Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz family for the purpose of sketching a portrait of the writer as the first “archivist” of this varied and extensive collection – based upon reflections by Roland Barthes and Susan Sontag concerning the functions (documentation) and dual nature of photography techniques (the photograph as an image and an object), as well as benefitting from accessible knowledge about the life history and predilections of the author of Sława i chwała.
