The National Museum in Warsaw is staging an exhibition focusing on the work of four outstanding press photographers who worked for the illustrated Świat weekly, which ran from 1951 to 1969.

All four, Konstanty Jarochowski, Jan Kosidowski, Wiesław Prażuch and Władysław Sławny, occupy an important place in the history of Polish photography.

They documented life in Poland in the 1950s and 1960s during the communist governments of Bolesław Bierut and Władysław Gomułka. They also traveled on assignments abroad, including to China, India, Yugoslavia, Mongolia, Norway, East Germany, Sudan, Italy and the USSR.

This is the first time such an exhibition has been devoted entirely to photographs for a magazine.

Until May 12; The exhibition is open Tuesday to Sunday,
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.) Closed on Mondays.
