About author:

Stanislaw Niedzwiecki – b. May 23, 1890 in Szajkuny, gub. Vilnius. He felt himself in Russian schools. At the court of Tsar Nicholas II, he served as a captain. As a result of the events of 1917, he found himself first in Transcaucasia, then in Persia, where he worked as an archaeologist and photographer. He corresponded with the magazine “Fotograf Polski” published at that time, publishing in it photos from Persia and theoretical treatises on the aesthetics of photography. After World War II, he settled in Jelenia Góra. He died at the age of 87. The collection of photographs and negatives was inherited by Witold Niedzwiecki from Gorzów. The National Museum in Wrocław has a small number of original photographs. The collection of the Gorzów Photographic Society includes a large number of negatives and a few photographs.
