Eugeniusz Haneman

Eugeniusz Haneman was born 14 April 1917 in Warsaw. Before the war, he completed Photography Highschool at Konwiktorska Street in Warsaw, where he was the student of outstanding photographer Marian Dederko. During the occupation, he worked as a portrait photographer in the “Portrait with Coffee” and “Van Dyck” workshops. The outbreak of the Uprising took him by surprise while he was visiting the dentist’s office in Powiśle district. He spent the following weeks in that office. He volunteered to the Government Delegation for Poland, where he was directed to Kazimierz Greger (owner of “Foto-Greger” photo store at 38 Nowy Świat street) for a camera and photography materials. Haneman collaborated with Sylwester Braun “Kris”, the Military Press Reporter (PSW), who had a photographic laboratory for his disposal. After the Uprising, through a transfer camp in Pruszków, he ended up in Kraków. There, he accidentally bumped into Kazimierz Greger and returned his camera, lent for the time of the Uprising. After the war, Haneman began working at the Wytwórnia Filmowa Wojska Polskiego (Polish Army Film Company) in Łodź, however, he was assigned to Kraków as a operator-correspondent of the Polish Film Chronicle. In 1946, he returned to Łódź, where he shoot film for documentaries. He still took photographs, and in 1947 he was admitted into the Association of Polish Art Photographers (ZPAF). In the years 1949 to 1953 he worked as an camera-man at the Wytwórni Filmów Oświatowych (Educational Film Company) in Łódź. From 1953 to 2005, he lectured photography at the National Film School in Łódź. He was a laureate of many awards for his photography accomplishments. He lived in Łódź. Haneman died 15 January 2014 in Borzęcin Duży, near Warsaw.

 

  • The group of photographs is divided into two series: photographs taken during the Uprising, and those after the war, from January and May of 1945. The first, taken in City Centre North, South, and Powiśle district; commemorate events such as the seize of Holy Cross Church on 23 August. Sylwester Braun „Kris”, a Military Press Reporter, whom Haneman collaborated with, appears in several photographs. The second group of images show the ruined and deserted city. Saved are also a few photographs of the Warsaw Ghetto, taken during the occupation from the window of a moving tram. These images survived, along with 15 negative rolls, buried in a Varsovian home basement. The second box with films, secured and hidden in the same way, was lost.
