The motto of his photographic passion were the words of one of the favorite masters - Ansel Adams: " You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved."...

Works Synopsis

The Republic of Poland is located right in the heart of Europe. In its history, Poland has had ups and downs. Its statehood has been shaped for centuries. Neighboring powers have invaded Poland many times, destroying it repeatedly. However, the Polish nation never ceased fighting for its identity. The final stage of this struggle was the overthrow of the Soviet occupation in Poland and in this part of Europe. The Solidarity (Solidarnosc) movement, led by the Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Lech Walesa, had a crucial role in those events. Currently, Poles are proud members of the European Union. They are building a modern country remembering about their history and traditions. The Polish historical heritage sites are important tourist destinations, surrounded by beautiful landscapes of the seaside, lakes, forests and mountains. Monumental castles, sophisticated palaces, bourgeois tenement houses and magnificent churches are a common part of that landscape. Many of these structures are part of the UNESCO World Heritage. In the architecture of monuments, in their interiors, you can see a variety of influences from across eras and styles. This diversity undoubtedly delights and encourages to keep discovering new places. Guests from all over the world are always welcome here and greeted with a smile and beauty, especially of beautiful Polish women.
