and member of photo agency Visum Images in Hamburg, based in Belfast. Since 2007 I have been passionate about social documentary
photography. In 2007 and 2008 I participated in social documentary
photography and photo editing workshops organized by National
Geographic. In 2004 I left Poland to travel around the world, I visited
more than 20 countries in Europe, Middle East, North and Latin America. Dozens
of my pictures taken during these trips are published in American
version of The National Geographic. In 2007 one of my pictures was named
Best Picture of the Month in the American edition of National
Geographic and was published all over the world. Also, some of my
pictures were published in National Geographic, Time, Belfast Telegraph,
BBC, Vision Project, Social Documentary.net, Foto Evidence, DR, NGO
insider among many others.
Since 2010 I have been living in Belfast, and
documenting the transition and everyday life of Northern Ireland during
the peace process. That is my first long-term project. The series of
pictures I took in NI won me award- a first prize in the Polish edition
of National Geographic competition in the Reportage category and then
two of my pictures were commanded in Sony World Photography Awards
competition in 2013 and a series of pictures were Honorable Mentioned in
International Photography Award in Los Angeles in 2012.
