The Photographs Have Been Taken in Szopienice
by Jacek Lidwin
The book contain my photos from Szopienice. This is a Katowice district, the city on the Upper Silesia, in Poland. To 1960 it was independent. Szopienice was founded as a village in 1360 and it was developed in the second half of the nineteenth century around the metallurgy industry. The civic rights was given to them in 1951. I photographed Szopienice in the spring of 2003.
