Photographer's Note

Today everyone interested in history or just looking for some entertainment could visit Zamosc to spectate the reconstruction of the siege which took place in 1648. It was during the Chmielnicki's Insurrection when Zamosc had to face Cossacks' attack. In the 17th century our city was a strong and modern fortress which also survived Swedish invasion just a few years later.

It was a great experience to see these dressed up troops marching through the streets and mixing with modernity. Then we had an opportunity to spectate the fight.

Discussing the photo, I changed the colour tonation of the photo but left boy's hat red to put emphase on event's character and to show the connection between history and present days.

Tomorrow we'll have an open field battle, which will take place in the park. Please come if interested, everyone's invited! :-)
