About the Artist:

I was born in 1971; graduated in law at the University of Warsaw in 1992, but very soon after I decided to pursue a career in photography. In 1999 I was awarded the first prize in Nature category at the World Press Photo contest. From that time on I had various publications in magazines (among others: Max – German edition, L’Equipe, The Guardian, Newsweek – Polish edition, Forbes – Polish edition, Reponses Photo, British Journal of Photography) and awards (World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year, NPPA Best of Photojournalism). I cooperate with Focus Fotoagentur in Hamburg and Yours Foundation in Warsaw.
