PORTRAITS AND COINS
is a photographic project commissioned by the National Bank of Poland in 2011.
A series of more than 100 photographs which bring together some of the most prominent figures in the Polish public life and collector coins.
The photographs were exhibited in 16 Polish cities and were published in a photo album with accompanying interviews.
The autographed portraits as well as the coins presented in the pictures were donated to an auction in support of the 20th Grand Finale of the Great Orchestra of Christmas Charity. The auction yielded over PLN 250,000. The money were spend on the state-of-the-art devices to save the lives of premature inflants and insulin pumps for pregnant women suffering from diabetes.
