This article attempts at a comprehensive interpretation of the cycle written by the Polish writer and reporter who has died this year. Presenting the areas of artistic activity which were fundamental to the building of Ryszard. Kapuscinski's original vision of the world, including photography, travel, personal afterthought, the authoress' intent is to prove that the multiplicity and apparent incoherence of the literary raw material have enabled him to aptly and persuasively describe the nature of our contemporary time. The world seen by this author as a collage makes him put pieces of reality into a whole that merges incongruent elements, showing them in a new and understanding perspective.
