ENCOUNTERING KRIEGER

  • Dietla Street Festival Dietla Kraków, małopolskie Poland (map)

Ignacy Krieger is widely recognized as the most important Kraków photographer of the 19th century. Krieger’s work made key visual contributions to Polish national self-consciousness during the Partition period, analagous to those of Jan Matejko, Krieger’s close contemporary.  Much less remembered – almost forgotten – is that Krieger was a Jew, a hinge figure between majority and minority communities and consciousness. As part of the Dietla Street Fest, we will present examples of Krieger’s art, and the chance to look at contemporary Dietla using the same kind of photographic equipment that he himself used.
