bio : Photography by Arek Soltysik
Arek Soltysik is self-taught photographer based in Myszkow, Poland. A lover of traditional photography.
From the beginning of his adventure with photography he was most interested in photographing people. As the time has passed documentary photography has increasingly begun to attract his attention.
Since 2014 he has worked out three projects: 'a long web of paper', 'remnants of hope' and 'generations'.
He was nominated in the plebiscite organized by Radiowy Dom Kultury (Trojka - Program 3 of Polish Radio) for the series 'a long web of paper' to the title of 'Kulturysta Roku 2015'.
