Antoni Matuszny, who came from the Beskid village of Laliki, was interested in photography since he was a child. As he recalls, he wanted to save the life of his family and the countryside in the 1970s from oblivion. At the age of thirteen, he bought the first camera, and when he was 24 – the camera of the Soviet Quarz 5.
A 1987 film documenting the life of the Matuszni family while Antoni spends time with his daughters, Ania and Paulina, and his wife Elżbieta is knitting.
