Cite: Sylwia Konopacka-Bąk, Motyw Stabat Mater Dolorosa a wizualizacja ludzkiego cierpienia w fotografii prasowej, "Kultura - Media - Teologia", 2012( 11) nr 4, s. 32-40.

This article presents a reflection on the Stabat Mater Dolorosa motive, based on selected images. Visualization of human suffering, which the central point is a woman suffering becomes an icon of pain. It is ephemeral, but has a universal dimension.
