About Photographer

I am graduate in physics, but work as a (awarded) fashion and sportswear designer. I try to be as much as possible in the mountains. I spend 3 months each year hiking in the wilderness alone or with one friend, with all in my backpack. I try to avoid civilization and people. Hiking is like meditation- makes my life richer. I am author of the book Wedrowki Pirenejskie (short stories with photographs) and since many years I write popular blog about mountains Kocham Góry- blog.kwark.pl I do not earn any money on photography (so I am not professional photographer) and I hope to never be so. I do what I love as I guess most of amateurs. Since year I work on the long distance project about the last wilde places in Europe. I try to show the importance of wilderness and its influence to me which I hope is universal. Nature is not a source of pretty pictures and not a recreation place. It is much, much more.
