About Marysia

I’m a freelance photographer working mainly on community and cross-generational projects. I’m always on the look out for long term residencies where I can develop my practice, engage with communities and organisations and meet new challenges.

My own photography projects deal with shared memories and sense of place. I’m currently based in Scotland where I’ve been researching the Polish Army’s presence during WW2. My exhibition Traces: the Polish Army in Fife during WW2 shown at the Cupar Arts Festival 2011 proved very popular with locals and second generation Poles from across Fife and further afield. I’m now considering ways to develop this and to create an online exhibition.

See my website for further details of my work and follow my blog for moments that amuse me and things that inspire or intrigue me.

Please contact me if you would like to collaborate on a project.
And, of course, I love to get comments on my work and blog.

  5. I have a question for you. The contact link on your website is not working. Please contact me.

  6. Good info now I know what the swooping eagle with the wreath is my Father has, with several other documents, paper medals and a thin multi-colored fabric the diameter of a pencil and about six inches long.

  7. Hi, My father too came to Britain via Hungary during the war. He patrolled the east coast, staying in various places, did a course in Manchester at the Co-operative society school and then worked in London in the PM’s liaison office. I’ve been researching his story because he wrote his memoirs before he died. Next year I am hoping to go back to Poland and retrace his steps.

    Would love to see your links but they don’t work. 😦

    • Hello. Sorry about that.I haven’t looked at some of the links for a while so will check them out.
      How lovely for you to have his memoirs. My father, like many, never spoke out his wartime experiences or Poland really.He never returned but made his new life here in the UK. I’d like to hear about his life and your travels so keep in touch.

  8. Stumbled across your interesting site by accident. There is a historical event taking place soon in Dunfermline celebrating the Polish effort in helping the local Home guard and strengthening the beach defences. The festival website is here http://www.defenddunfermlineww2.co.uk/ I know the Polish consulate has given some funding and several people of Polish descent have been involved. THought it might interest you.
