Photographer Celebrates 100 Years Of Polish Independence With This Stunning Photoshoot

According to Polish photographer Sebastian Luczywo: “You may not know but for 123 years Poland was wiped out from the map of the world. From 1795 to 1918 we ceased to exist. But not in our hearts and minds. Partitioned between Austria, Russia and Prussia we always dreamed that one day we would regain our independence.

We fought our oppressors in many ways, in insurrections where gentry and peasants fought side by side, knowing that they risked everything. We fought through the works of great minds such as Chopin, Mickiewicz, Paderewski, Curie-Skłodowska. We showed the world our love for our motherland and that we still existed, created and yearned for freedom.

And finally, in 1918 our dreams came true and we returned to the map. The Second Republic was extinguished by the Second World War, but even those terrors failed to dampen our spirits. Later, we still had one fight to win, which we did through our Solidarity and faith in the Holy Father, Saint John Paul.

Now we are strong, free and independent. Today we are celebrating 100 years of our independence, and may we stay this way forever! Long live Poland! Vivat Polonia!”
