Photographer's Note

Cold foggy morning in Nowa Huta, near Krakow in Poland.

Nowa Huta was started in 1949 as a separate town near Kraków on terrain resumed by the Communist Government.
It was planned as a huge centre of heavy industry. The town was to become an ideal town for the communist propaganda and populated mostly by industrial workers.
In the 1980s Nowa Huta became a place of many demonstrations and violent street protests of the Solidarity movement.
