This bilingual album features the earliest and least known artistic work of Zdzisław Beksiński – photography, with which he remained fascinated almost throughout the 1950s. Although the famous visionary artist consistently disparaged his juvenile fling with photography later in life, his earliest work is appreciated by art critics and academics alike.

The text by Wiesław Banach provides a systematic analysis of the motifs and formal elements in Beksiński’s work (e.g. portrait, nude, expressionistic, abstract, montage), and has been arranged according to the original graphic design by professor Lech Majewski. The album is abundantly illustrated with never before published photographs, made available courtesy of the Historical Museum in Sanok and the National Museum in Wrocław.
