Wieczorek created expressive high-contrast images, which were in opposition to the soft-light impressionist photographs prevailing in Polish photography in the inter-war period. Instead of traditional composition, he would often use dynamic, puzzling foreshortening effects. What is also notable is the great documentary value of his works, in which he showed Zakopane - a modern resort at the time - from different perspectives and in different seasons of the year.
The Museum of the History of Photography in Kraków owns the same photo- graph in a postcard form.
