Basicly my job has nothing to do with photograhpy. I am a radio journalist working in the Polish Radio Culutre section. Accept that I am a Holocaust historian - that is why so much of my photos are taken in Oswiecim (Auschwitz). I work in several projects from which the biggest is "Europe according to Auschwitz" based at Warsaw University Laboratory of Reportage. I've been photographing for about three years. I used to take analogue pictures, but now I do digital Olympus E-300 which seems to be quite good. My main interest in photography is people - their emotions, reactions and actions. I think you can really tell something about the world through their faces and acts. I think you can show almost everything just showing people in different contexts and perspectives. But still my main tool is the microphone. I participate in Ben S. initiative "comment 5 pictures a day"
