Tomasz Kawecki (1993) is a photographer living and working between Krakow and Warsaw. He studies at the Institute of Creative Photography in Opava and at the Faculty of Architecture of the Krakow University of Technology.

Tomasz's work comes from his inner space. Using elements of performance and installation, he mixes reality with fiction , which results in quasi-documentary outcome. In his works, he uses universal symbols that are archetypes in the collective thinking of society. Out of the chthonic of nature, out of its chaos and harmony, he intuitively selects fragments from which he creates images. The leitmotif of Tomek's works is the dualism present in nature and man.

Tomasz's work's has been exibithed and published internacionally. Among others, he is a winner of LensCulture ArtPhotography Awards(US), Cracow Photomonth ShowOFF section(PL), Grand Prix IMAnext "Dream"(JPN) and Reframing History Photo Vogue Italia.
