2019 was an interesting year for me. It was a year of reconciliation and at the same time lots of personal growth. It was a year when I learned to lean on others and ask for help as well as rekindle relationships that had fallen to the side. There were new friends that came into…Read More
Simplicity and simple situations that makes me stop and look again often make up my own versions of art. Innocent moments that meant something to me without really thinking about what that meaning is, but having captured it, eases my mind a little with the knowledge that its beauty didn’t go unnoticed and will be…Read More
In additon to my everyday gear, whether its digital or analog, I always have my compact analog Olympus LT-1 with me. Easy to use and small enough to fit in my pocket or bag, the camera has proven to be quite capable of capturing the everyday life that moves me. This was also another lazy…Read More
Autumn in Poland is just so lovely and this last year we were treated to a pretty warm and pleasant one that reached all the way into November. I started this roll of Kodak Pro 100 in late September and lazily shot it with my Nikon FM2 until just before Christmas capturing moments as they…Read More

A lifetime of books, films, articles and conversations referencing the holocaust and the atrocities that were carried out, but not one single thing or any of my life experiences could prepare me for the horror and tangible feel of being at the site and how it would ultimately change my perception once leaving.Read More
Earlier in August, my Nikon FM2 broke…again. Same issue as last time, the rewind stem came undone. Luckily (again) it happened just after I rewound the film, so some very good fortune there. Riding with luck on my side, I found a repairman dedicated to cameras in a way I had not witnessed before and…Read More
Last year on my birthday while vacationing in Lisbon, Agnieszka surpised me with an analog workshop and it set into motion a renewal of energy in photography and a love affair with film. Sometimes I am surpised with how much that single day impacted me and the direction it has taken me in, but life…Read More
