Mandalay - Myanmar October 2018 /photo Maciej Dakowicz

I was born in soviet Poland where I found my calling in the spatial perception and geometric patterns of architecture. After finishing my studies in architecture, I moved to Paris, where I have lived ever since. 

I discovered street photography in November 2018, when I decided to take one of Maciej Dakowicz’ workshops in Mandalay, Myanmar. That was the first spark that incited a whole series of workshops and photography related trips, from the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia to the Bay of Bengal in India, my photographs are inspired by the people that I cross paths with during each adventure.

"I don't think about art when I work, I think about life. "

-Jean Michel Basquiat

I live for spontaneous encounters that can only take place in the streets, looks, compositions and colors lead me to create portraits through contact and empathy. A woman blindfolding her eyes from the sun, a shadow flooding the edges of a fruit stand, a scarf carried away by a sudden gust of wind, these ordinary scenes become extraordinary fragments that make up my photos.

When I go to the streets with my camera, I have no specific idea of ​​what I will be photographing .. street, light, colors and most of all ordinary people inspire me. I feel that something magical is happening with me, with the world around me as I take pictures
