Photographer's Note

It's a photo to tell about a specyfically Polish (at the edge of extinction)tradition of "student mountain shelter".
During comunistic era every faculty of an university used to possess a small house somewhere in moutains where its student (but not exclusively)could come for a weekend and stay almost for free (or in a exchange for giving a hand to fulfilling shelter duties).
It has created a "weekend communities" lifestyle - all food was prepared and eaten together, playing guitars, singing, telling storries, reading books, expeditions, shelter works, and other type of activities were available to anyone who felt like attending them.
It's a one of those which survivied in "wild capitalizm" trying to keep up the traditional atmosphere..
It's "owned" by "moutains guides assotiation" - a group of former students who fallen in love with the place and decided to maintain it and its atmopsphere.
