Nowa Huta

On October 2015, I was invited by Cafe Babel to create a photo story about young people of Krakow. I have chosen to photograph Nowa Huta because of similarities with the industrial town where I was born and raised.
I asked young people of this neighborhood, former city, Nowa Huta: “what would make you happier?”.

Nowa Huta was the first city in post-war Poland to be built virtually from scratch. The district owes its name – “the new steelworks” – to the industrial complex that was built along with it. Later, in 1951, the town became incorporated as part of Krakow.
