Daniel Kazimierski: The Palace of Culture and Science, Warsaw
“To many people, the Palace of Culture and Science, which was “given” to Warsaw by Stalin, is a symbol of the Communist era in Poland.
While that is true, in my childhood, it was a wonderful, happy place. It was an escape from the gray poverty we endured.
There, I and my friends learned to make model airplanes and saw our first movies, and, at Christmas, received the precious gift of a fresh orange.
In 2008, I was invited to Poland to take pictures and write a memoir for the book, My Palace.”
A book of the Palace pinhole photographs is available through Daniel Kazimierski’s publications page.
