Between the Frames: Zofia Chomħtowska’s Photographs of the Polesie Region 1925-1939 is the first exhibition in 30 years to cover so many works by Zofia Chomħtowska (1902-1991), a once acclaimed but now somewhat forgotten Polish photographer from the 1930s.

The exhibition comprises over 80 photographs by Chomħtowska. She took these in the vast plains of the Polesie region, which stretches between the Bug and the Pripyat rivers in what was once eastern Poland.

Chomħtowska was born in Polesie and spent many years living there. The exhibition provides audiences with an opportunity to learn more about the history of this unique, multicultural land inhabited by Poles, Belarusians, Ukrainians and Jews. Once part of Poland, the Polesie region is now divided between Belarus, Ukraine, Russia and Poland.

Chomħtowska’s photographs on display include some previously unpublished work along with some of the most well-known photos that won numerous awards in the interwar period.

The exhibition comes with a publication featuring over 200 photographs and articles on Chomħtowska and the history of Polesie.
