    Thanks for the links. The images and the people depicted in the first image link look very stylish not something one would expect from Poland before the fall of the iron curtain.

    In the 1960's especially, he photographed many Polish celebrities and artists. The look was very mid-century Modern.

    I don't know how long this small show is going to be up in Brooklyn, and unfortunately I had a prior commitment and couldn't get to the film screening:

    I did, however, have the privilege of meeting the man himself, his young protege, and the film maker in our offices today. We're thinking about how to organize a larger show for his work. He's definitely an artist with a lot of character and experience. Despite the miserable weather and low visibility, he made a few shots with a well-worn Contax 167MT from our windows on the 46th floor of the Empire State Building.
