Artist statement

I would like to see my films and photography as a type of experience for the viewer. It is experience that becomes the basis for understanding the “other”, and understanding creates tolerance.

I work on long-term projects. I enter that little part of the world that interests me. Time allows me to understand people and spaces which are different from the ones I come across on a daily basis. I include my experiences and stories of the people I meet in my frames.

I studied philosophy and film theory at the Jagiellonian University and the making of film image, TV and photography at the Faculty of Radio and Television of the University of Silesia.

Profession: Cameraman, photographer.
