The history of Polish photography has been influenced if not shaped by political conditions in the country. In the second half of the 20th century, the challenge to all artists came from the totalitarian political regime imposed by the Communists from 1945 until 1989.
Despite these conditions, Poland has a long and illustrious history of creative fine art photography. But unlike its better-known regional neighbors (Germany, Russia, Hungary, Czechoslovakia), the works of Polish photographers have been less accessible and less known outside the country’s borders.
