Edward Wojciechowski

Edward Wojciechowski was born 3 October 1919. He worked in the State Aviation Works’ engine factory in Warsaw before the war. He moved to Białogard after the war, before settling in Koszalin. His subsequent employers included the Polish Grain Plant and local Workers’ Cooperative Association.

 

  • Wojciechowski’s pictures show the Uprising from the perspective of a civilian. They don’t show the fighting, the victims, or Insurgents at rest or during meals – a common theme of those who were both photographers and soldiers. Instead, many of his photographs were of neighbours, friends, and family. The Insurgents are honoured in the final series of shots, taken on Śniadeckich Street during the evacuation. They have the feel of a city being abandoned by its defenders. He used a Leica camera and Isochrom F, Isopan ISS and Fluorapid Agfa films.
