Artist Profile

Born: 1979

Hometown: Wyskitna

Based in: Poland

Graduate of Polish studies and journalism. After graduation lived and worked in the UK. Asking himself some existential questions, decided to return to homeland and became professional photographer.
In his work mainly focused on documentary and fine-art photography. In the area of his interest a special place is taken by the relation: man-nature-sacred as well as the semantics of the image.
Mostly focused on landscape, as the most open (physical and semantic) field, but does not avoid any other -scapes. Rereading the famous phrase “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy” is pleased that in the 21st century there are still plenty of them.
