The museum has got the rich collection of artistic and documentary photography and thousands of negatives (some of them has never been developed) by Beksinski. These works are characterized by an innovative approach, creativity and high quality. Unquestionable artistic qualities caused that Beksinski is still regarded as one of the greatest and the most inventive photographers of the 50s. Individual perception of reality was already revealed in these early works but the first encounter with this medium had occurred much earlier: I have photographed probably since 1940. Someday, at the beginning of the war, my father gave me his old camera (...) Although I photographed a lot of, it was not artistic creativity. I photographed friends, situations which had happened, tanks with soldiers, even airports (...). These pictures are stored in the museum archive and are important historical testimony to those times.
