RIP Andrzej Wajda (1926-2016) - One of the most prolific Polish creators and film directors of all time, best known for classics such as “Man of Marble” (1977), ‘Man of Iron” (1981), “Danton” (1982) and “Katyn” (2007), has died today at age 90. Wajda basically put Poland on the map (along with Polanski, same generation and who acted in Innocent Sorcerers (1960), made by Wajda) with his films, with many new wave characteristics. A cinema mostly focused on historical films and social revolutions, Wajda has covered from the French revolution to many WWII pieces to the socialist revolutions in his country. And despite success, he never had to follow the trend of European directors going to Hollywood; he simply wanted to make what he wanted and in the way he wanted. In 1954, he released his first feature films “A Generation”, which along with “Kanal“ (1956) and “Ashes and Diamonds” (1958) formed a classic war trilogy. In 1981, he won the Palme D’or at Cannes for “Man of Iron”, a sequel to “Man of Marble” (1977), tales revolving a fictional laborer hero Mateusz Birkut but this time following the Solidarity movement by Lech Walesa. Other credits include: “Lotna” (1959), “Samson” (1961), “The Ashes” (1965), “Hunting Flies” (1969), “Pilate and Others” (1972), “The Orchestra Conductor” (1980), “A Love in Germany” (1983),“The Possessed” (1988), “Holy Week” (1995), “Miss Nobody” (1996), “Pan Tadeusz” (1999), “The Revenge” (2002) and Walesa: Man of Hope (2013). Fourof his films received Oscar nominations as Best Foreign Language Film: “The Promised Land” (1975), “The Maids of Wilko” (1979), “Man of Iron” (1981) and “Katyn” (2007). He received an honorary Oscar in 2000, and his final film the upcoming “Afterimage” (2016) was already submitted by Poland to the 2017′s Oscars.

Portraits taken by Zofia Nasierowska [1931-2011], Polish photographer who was called the “queen of portraying the Polish stars”. Since 1956 she belonged to the Association of Polish Art Photographers [ZPAF].

Nasierowska’s work was said to be outstanding and thanks to unique techniques in the lighting setup she was able to bring up the beauty of the seemingly average-looking or bring encouragement the most shy models. Most of the shots taken by her became the iconic portraits of the Polish “PRL era” stars.

After 35 years of active work she stopped photographing due to a growing eye disease.

Actresses on the pictures:

  1. Elżbieta Starostecka
  2. Magdalena Zawadzka
  3. Beata Tyszkiewicz
  4. Elżbieta Czyżewska
  5. Barbara Brylska
  6. Pola Raksa
  7. Anna Nehrebecka
  8. Małgorzata Braunek
  9. Barbara Kwiatkowska-Lass
  10. Irena Karel
