Biography

Born in Poland in 1973, Roland studied architecture at the Wroclaw University of Technology and later at the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands. He did not go on to pursue a career in architecture, but instead decided to devote his life to his greatest passion – photography. At one time he was also active in the music industry, but he eventually drifted away from this ambition and settled on graphic design.

The search for inspiration led him to a fascination with photography, which remains the key area of his interest and efforts to this day; both professional and otherwise.

Roland treats photography as a purely esthetic experience. His black and white photographs are characterized by a thoroughly considered sense of composition and proportion, as well as a painter's approach to light. His photographs are influenced by classic photography, and contain echoes of fashion photography and subtle hints of pop culture. Many of his photographs possess a hypnotic element of tasteful eroticism, which naturally draws the viewer into an intimate imaginary world.

His photos have appeared on the covers of music albums and in music press, for example in "Metal Hammer", "Tylko Rock", "Top Guitar", "Free Colours", in magazines “Playboy”, “Wprost”, "Musli Magazine", "Popcorn", "Audio", "Dobre Wnętrze", "Estrada & Studio", photographic magazines "Aparaty i fotografia cyfrowa",
as well as in nation-wide newspapers, such as "Gazeta Wyborcza", "Polityka" and "Metro".
