About site

This is a photo journal of my various excursions that provides a glimpse of my evolution as a photographer, showcasing my artistic journey and the development of my style over time. I mainly shoot urban landscapes, street scenes and lifestyle portraits using a decade old vintage Fujifilm X100S which has became my favorite camera of all time.

The site was launched in 2022 to mark the 20th anniversary of my adventure with digital photography and to start shooting again after a long (cough) break. It’s currently being updated with older, redux entries from my previous blog.

Visit Instagram (currently paused) for archival photos (2010-2023).

About me

Since early age I gravitated towards art and technology and tought myself web design while roaming through the primordial Internet at the turn of the century. I improved my skills with graphics and composition at the High School of Arts which I graduated with diploma in design and photography in 2003. During this time my illustrations and comics were published in various magazines and I co-organised online exhibits featuring many Polish artists known today.

Following that I studied graphic design at the Academy of Fine Arts for a few years before dropping out and moving to London to purse a career in my profession. After working mostly in the interactive design field (the golden age of flash and early days of UX/UI) and collaborating with many acclaimed British and Polish agencies for over a decade I founded SYROP, an independent studio to design visual identity systems and develop treatments for production companies, agencies and advertising directors worldwide.

As time passed I decided to focus more on personal projects that offered me a better opportunity to express my creativity. I expanded my interests in street photography, as well as digital art which became a totally new and exciting medium because of generative AI revolution. I currently live in Warsaw with my wife and a small collection of Funko Pop Batman figures.
