My Tata (dad) is one of the most gentle, compassionate people I have ever met. He genuinely cares for other people and enjoys helping out whenever possible. I’m so grateful for all that I have learned and continue to learn from him.
Happy Father’s Day, Tata. Ja cię kocham! 💗
Józef and Lilka, Loughborough, England | 1977. Documentary photographer Czesław Siegieda recorded life in a Polish community in England from 1970 to the 1980s.
My family – mother, stepfather, a younger brother and sister, two stepbrothers, and a brother from my mother’s marriage to my stepfather. Mother married twice. Her first husband (my father) suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle accident in 1964, and died a few weeks before my 10th birthday. Life suddenly became challenging, not least because my mother spoke only broken English. For the next 8 years, I was the translator for our family and helped to deal with all official correspondence.
