A Time That Was - Poland in the 1980s
Photojournalist Dennis Chamberlin has worked for a number of publications throughout the world but most of his professional career was spent living and working in Poland. He covered the fall of communism and reintegration of Europe for various international publications for over 15 years. He now lives in Iowa.
I first visited Poland during the final days of martial law. I was in search of family roots and in addition to finding family I also found a place where I felt at home. The summer of 1983 opened my eyes to the possibilities that lay before me. In the past 25 years Poland has changed dramatically but there is something indelible about that country during the 1980s that makes it hard to let go.
