Jacek Lidwin

I have photographed for over 15 years. I regularly publish, write and talk about my work. My photos have featured in many publications and I have produced artwork and promotional images for artists, theatres and newspapers. I was exhibited in various exhibitions in Poland, mostly in Katowice where I work and live.
I’m inspired by street photography of Robert Frank, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Doisneau.
