We spent 3hrs at the museum today. For me, going to an exhibition with little kids is like an extreme short distance race through the gallery rooms. But despite that crazy pace I feel so happy and grateful for having a chance to see the extraordinary #Wyspiański exhibition. I’ve always been a fan of his floral frescos and it was great to see how the whole idea was born, and to trace the creative process of designing. I had no idea that he actually took inspiration from his walks on the Vistula River banks and observing weeds such as dandelions, grasses and verbascums 🌾 (my inner gardener is calling me!) Also the displayed single Leonardo Da Vinci painting was great, but tbh nothing can impress me anymore after visiting Uffizi and Louvre 😂 oh and I loved the historial craft and design gallery where I’ve spotted a nearly 200 y.o. wallet and visit card of famous Polish poet #adammickiewicz Things like that touch me deeply and almost make me cry, because I was born in a country where the major part of cultural heritage and national treasures has been lost/burnt/destroyed/stolen during WWII. #kraków #gallerytime #muzeumnarodowewkrakowie @thenationalmuseuminkrakow #cracow #polishheritage

One of the most rewarding projects I have undertaken recently is the documentary project I began, tracing descendants of Polish Soldiers and Refugees in Scotland. This developed out of a personal journey of my own, culminating in a book I produced for my HND entitled 'Fragments That Remain', which was a pictorial record of my search for my Polish Grandparents and a desire to understand their stories. I have had the privilege of meeting with a number of families in Fraserburgh, Aberdeenshire, whose fathers were based at the airfield in nearby Cairnbulg/Inverallochy during and just after WW2. These men were unable to return to communist Poland after the war and raised their families in the UK. My desire was to hear their stories from their descendants point of view and gain an insight into the challenge their families had faced. I interviewed each family and took individual portraits. I will be continuing the next part of this work until April, and am eager to trace descendants in nearby Banff and Peterhead in particular, as Polish troops were also based in these locations.I will eventually present theses brave individuals stories alongside the images of their descendants. Special thanks to the families of Ryszard Dyga, Stanislaw and Irena Ral, Stanislaw Lasowski, Jan Andre Gawryluk, Jan Zawieja and Jan Boron.
Please contact me via email: jenniemilne67@gmail.com, https://www.facebook.com/jenniferwrensphotography/ Facebook Messenger, or comment on this post if you wish to take part or know of someone who may. I do want to be able to include families outside of the North East of Scotland, but due to time constraints this semester may need to do so at a later date. Please contact me anyway with your details ! #polishhistory #polishheritage #polisharmy #polishsoldiers #polishheroes #ww2 #generations #rememberence #documentaryphotographer
