About Photographer

I am a photographer by passion, by education - Phd in nuclear physics, by profession - a financier. My practice is based on photography as a means of storytelling - I am interested in documentation, reportage and art photography with my main focus to portray people. In 2010 I graduated from a photography study of the Association of Polish Art Photographers and became its member. I had several individual exhibitions in galleries in Poland. I was awarded in the National Geographic 2010 competition.
