One of the photos shows Karol Wojtyla, then the archbishop of Krakow, wearing a T-shirt, shorts and a red bandana scarf. An enormous fish is lying at his feet. Another photo depicts Wojtyla having a meal in front of his tent.
The photos were taken during a summer trip that the future pope took with his friends from the university. They slept in tents, went kayaking, fishing, contemplated nature and discussed such issues as love, responsibility and morality.
Andrea Tornielli, an expert on Vatican told Il Giornale that till now the existence of the photos was kept secret and they have never been publicly displayed till now. Soon the unknown photos of John Paul II will be published in a book on marriied life written by Wojtyla in 1968. [reference]
