Photographer Eva Rubinstein has loaned a collection of 52 works entitled Vintage Prints to the National Museum in Warsaw. The collection was compiled by the artist herself and spans her entire career.

The barite-coated bromide paper prints depict scenes from England, France, Spain, Ireland, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Italy and the US. The oldest photograph in the collection, Miroir, vitrine, was taken in New York in 1967 and the most recent, Carousel. Nuit was taken in Paris in 1990.

Rubinstein concentrated on classical portraits and social commentary in places as diverse as care homes and luxury apartments. She documented political events in Belfast and Dublin and took studio and outdoor photographs. Her elegantly composed photographs, which have won worldwide acclaim, are often ascetic yet always filled with meaning.
