Grażyna Rutowska – opening of the photography exhibition

Grażyna Rutowska is a renowned artist and photographer who was one of the most important figures in the world of photojournalism in the 1970s. Known for her extraordinary talent in capturing beauty in everyday moments, she subtly combined the play of light and shadow with a unique approach to composition. Her archive contains nearly 40,000 photos! All the photographs presented at the exhibition come from the collections of the National Digital Archives. Rutowska completed photo reports in nearly 500 towns across the country, documenting practically all aspects of life in the People’s Republic of Poland. Her photographs depict both the great investments of the Gierek decade and everyday life, entertainment, sports, leisure, and the contrasts between the cities and villages of that era. Rutowska was a car enthusiast and a member of PZMot (Polish Automobile and Motorcycle Federation). Behind the wheel of her Fiat 125p, she covered a total of 400,000 kilometres. She methodically described the photographs she took, collected press clippings with her published photos, and even entire issues of magazines – one could say she was not only a photographer but also an archivist.

The exhibition is available for viewing in the Hartiwg Alley until the end of July. Admission free. Outdoor photography exhibition available at all times.
