Born in 1984, Collective Kaïros photographer, I’m based in Paris.
French-Polish, I was immersed in two different cultures. That made me think of the connections that exist between man and the culture that surrounds him, between man and his territory. Sociology was my first tool to explore those themes. Photography came gradually. First, as a simple witness of my travelling experiences in Africa and Asia. Then, during my MASTER degree studies in Cracow, Poland, I completely committed myself to this medium.
During two years, Adam Golec, a photo editor and photographer for the newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza, taught me the basis of my photographic approach.
Back in France, I continue the kind of photojurnalism that focuses on the place of individual inside society. Also portraits are more and more important in my work, because I like the particular contact that happens during the encounter between the photographer and his subject.

Wojciech Gromada, Homole Wawoz's baca, have lunch alone, aside from his Juhasi. The baca is the owner of the bacowka, a traditional shelter made of wood where the cheese is molded and smoked. Oscypek, a polish cheese made from ewe's milk, is a protected trade name under the EU's Protected Designation of Origin geographical indication since 2008. This cheese is the result of a traditional handcraft process perpetuated by mountaineers, the Juhasi.
