Born in 1976 in Poznan, Poland. Father of two young girls, traveler, triathlete and Japan-culture passionate working in oncology department. Very musical beast with the tendencies to sing out loud in public. Notorious joker.
When not somewhere in the distant destinations together with his family, most of the time he may be seen rambling around the streets in his home town or on the way to or from the work place. The crowdier the better.
His adventure started with an old, sturdy Russian analog camera passed to him by his father in a primary school. After a long break the passion re-emerged in a college as a classical wet dark-room and then fully bloomed yet in digital era.
Nowadays he usually switches between street photography and landscapes but is more and more attracted to the former, leaving a "nice postcard views" behind. When on the street he is looking mainly for a light, composition, geometry and colors, trying to weave some pure human emotions in between. His shooting style depends on the mood and stretches from a confident fast walking up the human stream with the flash, almost colliding with people and shooting close to just patiently looking for colors or patterns requiring more previsualisation and very often waiting lots of time for all the puzzles to combine together. He also quite often happens to shoot purely by the instinct as a response to the sudden occurence. Candid moments it is.
As a photographer, he is continously hungry for a new techniques and ways of expressing his perception of the world around. Greatly appreciates all the visual nuances. He not only thinks in color, he is color.

Born in 1987 in Łódź, now based in Poznań, Poland.
Freelance photographer doing mainly street photography. Minimalist and friend of everyone interested in photography when it comes to its ethical and sociological aspects. Contemplates human behaviour on the streets. Prefers to capture interesting faces, from a really close distance. Tries to be a part of a scene more than just a regular observer. Started from black and white photography because of the pure form and mechalncholic mood they give, now also make some color photography as they seem to be more realistic to him. He is always moving with a camera in a search for interesting scenes of street life. A member of Streetical Collective.
