What are today’s interpretations of Zofia Rydet’s work? What do we know about her? What have we learnt about her while working on her archive? These are just some of the topics that will be discussed at Saturday’s meeting on this extraordinary photographer, author of Sociological Record – a monumental project consisting of more than 14,000 pictures.

The conclusions resulting from implementation of the latest project – What Remains – will be also presented during the meeting. The project includes photographic activities in the localities where Zofia Rydet worked on Sociological Record over 30 years ago. Persons from her photos have been located, recorded and portrayed. These meetings have a significant impact on understanding Rydet’s work.
