Part of Oleh and Bozhena Iwanusiw collection

The series comprises six albums with over two thousand original photographs, predominantly of churches of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchies whose territories fell within contemporary Poland and Slovakia (then Czechoslovakia). There also are photographs of many significant Lemko and Boiko events attended by Oleh Iwanusiw, such as the Sopot Festival (1985) and others, and discrete photographs of people, big trees in churchyards, and local nature. The albums are supplied with three binders of detailed indexes, lists, and maps of the churches (in the acknowledgment to his book Iwanusiw wrote that he is grateful to his father, Jaroslaw Iwanusiw, who was his "faithful secretary during the filming, and who was largely responsible for the preparation of the map, and for corrections to the text"). The series also contains an original book jacket of the "Church in Ruin" album, reviews of the album, feedbacks of "Church in Ruin" exhibit attendees in Lviv, and some other textual materials.
