I am a Polish photojournalist based in Paris and Warsaw. Fascinated by social issues and literature, I have studied French language and anthropology at Jagiellonian University in Cracow, before discovering photography at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lodz, Poland. I then studied documentary photography in Poland, France and in Australia.

My photographic practice focuses on subjects related to social inequalities, women rights and  the environmental issues. Since 2017 I have become a member of French Collective ITEM.
