This work uses slides made by an anonymous author, probably a Cracow engineer who during his numerous international travels in the 1970s and 1980s visited and photographed various historical sites, cities and nature. The collection shows popular locations in a surprising setting-without the crowds of tourists-captured in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and America. This set of over 2,000 carefully developed slides occasionally reveals the author of the narrative of the past: an explorer and an amateur photographer who passionately documented the sights of remote countries and cultures. The original transparencies cover a window at the castle, creating a singular stained-glass feature, which reminds us of the potent effect of photography in its material form, its former aesthetics and function.
