As a consequence, since 1982, at the request of Jancarz, he photographed Thursday Masses for the Homeland in Mistrzejowice (Cracow). According to Zbigniew Galicki, taking part in activities in Mistrzejowice was like “the breath of freedom” and “a drug”. Once he was detained for 48 hours after the mass in Mistrzejowice and urged to cooperate with the secret services. Search was conducted in his house, but nothing was found, despite the fact all negatives were hidden there. He graduated from the Christian University of Workers. He is retired now.
