At age 6, after much begging and manyoverwhelming promises to be on his best behavior, Marek finally convinced his father to buy him a Smiena 8M camera — an exclusive and extraordinary gift for a child growing up in communist Poland. Unfortunately, at the very moment when his dream was about to come true, someone purchased the last availablecamera just out from under his nose. Little Marek — traumatized by this experience — fled the shop and went missing for hours. Finally his father, after much searching, found Marek in tears. Rather than punish his son for running away and worrying the family, Marek’s dad decided to reward his passion. He bought the next camera he could find and set Marek off on his life long photography journey. This led to fun photography escapades like shooting Aunt Basia taking a shower, Grandpa napping with his mouth open, and some stunning sunrises over the fields next door.
Now much older, he approaches his photos with the pure childish admiration he had at 6. He is still as fascinated by images as he was as a child. And he continues his constant search to express emotions hidden in the never-ending palette of contrast between light and shadow. Studying light – the paint brush of the photography – is his true passion.
Far from just a personal hobby, his work has been repeatedly recognized and awarded around the globe and his photographs are displayed in fascinating solo exhibitions.
His enormous experience, creativity and versatility has been showcased in numerous, world-wide advertisements for global brands…
.… as well as other banks, food and beer producers.
