INFO



I graduated from The University of Lodz (Poland) in 2003, where I gained a diploma in Marketing (M.A.). Between 2006 and 2011 I studied photography at the Photography College of Warsaw in Poland and at Edinburgh College of Art.  

I'm interested in 'the human' and their emotions and expressions in specific situations. 
I think photography is hunting for something that is ephemeral in its nature and thus rare in its visual form. I'm amazed by the magic, mystery and charm of analogue photography.
