“Homo Homini Homo Est“, proclaimed one of the many signs at Krakow’s LGBTQI Equality March (Marsz Równości) Saturday. It could be translated as “Man is man to another man”, or, more aptly tongue-in-cheek, “Man is a homo[sexual] to another man.” It plays off the ancient, more cynical Latin proverb “Homo homini lupus”: “Man is a wolf to another man.” And many of the thousands of marchers may have felt they were battling wolves yesterday... My photographs are featured here, showing the ugly side that seems, like the proverbial wolves, to follow Equality Marches wherever they may go in Poland.
Jane Stirling Festival

The main protaganist of the evening was an absolute jewel among pianos, a unique Playel Piano Forte with the serial number of 13823, once belonging to Jane Stirling, in the 20th century aquired by Éduard Ganche' - a grand piano which has eventually found its way to Chopin's homeland and is now exhibitted in The Collegium Maius of the Jagiellonian University. In 1847, the instrument was selected for Jane Stirling by Frédéric Chopin himself.
