cutting grass with the brand new mower - featured collectibles
As Marek says on Ownetic: “Having a mower in the 70s in Poland was a big thing!”

Photography has always served us to capture the moment, a snapshot that we would like to keep. The collection of Marek Pasieczny from Poland is a selection of family photographs revolving around his father. The photos in My father’s life in a timelapse collection depict special, important occasions — such as weddings — but also not so ordinary everyday reality. For example, cutting grass with a new mower in the 70s is definitely a notable event worth preserving!
