• Eustachy Kossakowski, Eustachy Kossakowski Archive, 1945

The Eustachy Kossakowski archive includes 150,000 negatives and 20,000 transparencies. The priceless collection of the works of a photographer active in Poland and France can be divided into several groups. The first group are pictures from the period when Kossakowski specialised in journalistic photography, working for periodicals such as Stolica or Polska. The second part is a documentation, priceless for the Museum, of the Polish artistic life of the 1960s and 1970s, particularly documentations of Tadeusz Kantor’s and Jerzy Grotowski’s theatre shows, or the activities of Galeria Foksal or Galeria Krzywe Koło. Besides that, the archive includes Eustachy Kossakowski’s conceptual photographs, such as the famous 6 mètres avant Paris (1970), or the later, more metaphysical Lumieres de Chartres (1983-1990).
