In 1981 Magnum photographer Bruno Barbey travelled all over Poland. It was the time of Solidarity - a struggle for freedom in Soviet occupied Poland. A Pole, Karol Wojtyla, the former Cardinal Archbishop of Krakow, had been elected Pope. It was a time of hope. A hope that would be temporarily crushed with the introduction of martial law by General Jaruzelski’s government in December 1981. Bruno Barbey recorded life in Poland during this period in a set of 78 photographs. The photographs can be viewed on the Magnum Photography website.
