The dwellers of Męcmierz village (Kobyliński's photographs)
The opening of the exhibition : August 2 (Sunday) at 5:00 p.m. in the centre of Męćmierz

We are presenting Kobyliński's pictures of native Męćmierzans and newcomers who have already taken ‘roots’ in this place or are planning to settle here.

42 large-format photographs are exhibited in the square in the centre of Męćmierz. Thanks to the owner of this site, we could adopt the place to be the open air festival gallery.
