Robert Doisneau - My Paris

French master of black-and-white photography Robert Doisneau (1912–1994) was, along with Henri Cartier-Bresson, one of the great pioneers of photojournalism.

Doisneau is best known for his charming, playful and almost surreal photographs of everyday life. His most iconic pictures are from the early part of the 20th century, when he wandered around Paris with his Leica, capturing on film the wonders of the city and the life of its inhabitants.

Repatriates. How Gdansk helps Poles from the East

Gdansk is one of the few Polish cities that consistently and independently of the political climate are implementing the repatriation program of our compatriots from the East. Poles from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia, and Asian parts of Russia, who in the past were exiled from their homeland to these far-away places, now get a chance to return to Poland. In Gdansk they receive housing support, help in refreshing Polish language, finding work and adapting to our local community.
