About Rafal Kazmierczak

Rafał Kaźmierczak was born in Łódź, Poland. He is a graduate of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Warmia and MazuryUniversity in Olsztyn.

He has been keen on photography since his childhood, however the breakthrough for his career took place in 2012. It was then that he found his own path and the human became the most important subject in his perception.

The artist mainly uses medium-format and large-format cameras in order to capture the surrounding reality, which enables him to master traditional photographic techniques.

His works have been displayed at numerous solo and group exhibitions as well as post-contest shows in Poland and abroad.

He has been awarded with several prestigious photographic prizes and honourable mentions throughout his career.

In July 2015 he obtained the distinction ‘Artist FIAP’ (AFIAP) awarded by the International Federation of Photographic Art (FIAP).

He is also a creative photographer, Fellow of the Polish Republic’s Photoclub, a holder of the AFRP title.
