JERZY TADEUSZ LEWCZYNSKI
I think that a photograph transmits much more signals from the past than the view of reality of that time. - Jerzy Tadeusz Lewczynski - [translation cited in "Archeologia fotografii" ("Archeology of photography") by Jerzy Lewczynski, Wydawnictwo KROPKA, Wrzesnia 2005, p. 40]

It is good to be a discoverer of the unknown gulfs of photographic ocean of human oblivion! - Jerzy Tadeusz Lewczynski - (said after discovering an old damaged album of photographs left by a Polish officer in a peasant cottage during the September campaign of 1939) [translation cited in "Archeologia fotografii" ("Archeology of photography") by Jerzy Lewczynski, Wydawnictwo KROPKA, Wrzesnia 2005, p. 41]

The endless number of photographs thrown away from automatic machines seemingly levels our sensitivity to the surrounding reality; however, after many years when human lots fulfill, they will also become the recording of memory! - Jerzy Tadeusz Lewczynski - [translation cited in "Archeologia fotografii" ("Archeology of photography") by Jerzy Lewczynski, Wydawnictwo KROPKA, Wrzesnia 2005, p. 42]

Among many aspects of photography, one seems the most important and still unappreciated. Namely, the ability to convey the memory of the past. - Jerzy Tadeusz Lewczynski - [translation cited in "Archeologia fotografii" ("Archeology of photography") by Jerzy Lewczynski, Wydawnictwo KROPKA, Wrzesnia 2005, p. 42]

Further development of photography is the ‘birth’ of a negative. That most truthful witness became a particular soul of photography and up to the present fulfills the role of the most faithful trustee of the mystery of transmitting light. The negative has never constituted an object of such interest as a print. Virtually no one was trading negatives, and its presence in life is usually restricted to lying in drawers and hiding places. - Jerzy Tadeusz Lewczynski - [translation cited in "Archeologia fotografii" ("Archeology of photography") by Jerzy Lewczynski, Wydawnictwo KROPKA, Wrzesnia 2005, p. 53]

The fate of people depicted in a photograph and bringing up photographic memories for me is a kind of prayer and sighing. - Jerzy Tadeusz Lewczynski - [translation cited in "Archeologia fotografii" ("Archeology of photography") by Jerzy Lewczynski, Wydawnictwo KROPKA, Wrzesnia 2005, p. 51]

Looking 'inside' a photograph, I always try to unravel the secret of the presented being, all the joy and sorrows, and first of all mysterious human fate. - Jerzy Tadeusz Lewczynski - [translation cited in "Archeologia fotografii" ("Archeology of photography") by Jerzy Lewczynski, Wydawnictwo KROPKA, Wrzesnia 2005, p. 51]
