“In my photography projects, I focus on identity: - the city in which I live. I made a project about a former military airport and a radio station in Gliwice, the place where the Second World War began in Silesia. - people. I photographed my friends - the project "I can do it when I grow up" was awarded at the grand press photo competition; myself, my friends around.
