Photographer's Note

A Praga classic picture. This photo was taken on 2005 autumn at one of the Brzeska street back-yards. The dovecot bordered upon walls of the legendary Rozyckiego market. But last time I visited that place, the dovecot disappeared – as I guess - forever. At the backgroung you can see brick tenement-houses of the Zabkowska street.

The eastern part of Warsaw – called Praga - is recognized as an under-developed district of the city. But it is also a place which wasn’t destroyed during WW2. Visiting Praga you can feel a real atmosphere of the 19th Century Warsaw.

After WW2, when all eyes have been focused on the rebuilding western part, Praga has been left abandoned and became home for the poor working-class as well as some urban-outlaws. Today it is a very important living monument of the city’s identity.
