The project refers to the exhibition Subjective Photography organised by Zbigniew Dłubak and Zbigniew Łagocki in Kraków in September of 1968. It was the Polish equivalent of the international exhibitions realised by the circle of Otto Steinert in 1951, 1954 and 1958. The aim of the exhibition in Kraków was to present the changes in the ways of perceiving the art of photography. The majority of the works exhibited may have seemed far from traditional photography. What differed them from the latter was the technical aspects – collage, optical deformations, plastic interventions. The project entitled Subjective Photography in Polish Art of 1956 – 1969 aims to present the creatively executed pieces of  art of photography exhibited at that time; some other works, also created in that period – by Zdzisław Beksiński, Wojciech Bruszewski, Irena Małek-Jarosińska, Marek Piasecki, Bronisław Schlabs, among others, are going to be presented as an exception.
