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 film made in 1980 in Węgierska Górka. Shots of the construction of the Church dedicated to the Transfiguration of the Lord. You can also see the neighbors’ house, in the raw state, and the materials gathered for the construction of the Matuszny house.
