He is represented by the Panos Pictures agency for editorials. His first photography book, Side Effects, was published in early 2014. Second photobook OVER was self-published in September 2017. OVER is a step beyond the documentary photography, on the 20th anniversary of adventure with flying, In his own words this journey can be described as “an eternal quest for a world that would belong to nobody but me. Searching for a form which only imply the content. Which guides without defining. It doesn’t matter what I see when looking, but what I feel.”
Photographs from his projects are shown all over the world. He lives and works in Gdynia, Poland.
