My works have been featured in K-Mag, Exklusiv and VIVA! Moda. I have shown my work at several exhibitions and I cooperate with numerous designers.

“I am 28 years old and live in Wroclaw. I have taken up photography four years ago, during the third year of my Psychology studies. In my works I focus on the relationship/dialogue between the model and the space she is in. I try to capture the moments, movements, postures suspended in between pictures, moments without posing, weightless. So far my works have appeared in a number of magazines and zines and on the covers of two books. I have also participated in several exhibitions. Last year, my first album was published by the Berlin-based POGO BOOKS. This spring my works were exhibited in Nizio galery in Warsaw.”

FASHION AND MOVIE: Fashion Film Festival
Combining fashion and motion pictures is the lastest of all FashionPhilosophy projects. Nowadays, many designers wish to see their projects on the big screen, encouraging film-makers to create avant-garde films featuring their collections. Tomasz Ossolinski cooperated in such project with Magda Wunsche & Samsel, Konrad Parol with Marcin Kempski and Czlowiek Warga, and La Mania designers engaged in a joint project with Xawery Zulawski and Jan Kaczmarek (shown as a part of the Fashion Film Festival). It is worth mentioning here that this phenomenon is popular among people from the film industry, like style icon Tilda Swinton or designer Tom Ford. Motion pictures created by Yves Saint Laurent, Yohji Yamamoto, Kate Moss. Naomi Campbell or Tim Walker have already been screened during A Shaded View Of Fashion Film Festival – a world-famous film festival created in Paris by Diane Pernet. Before Pernet's film festival comes back to FashionPhilosophy in May, Autumn edition FW visitors will have a chance to watch motion pictures selected especially for Fashion Week audience.
