TomaszKawecki is a visual artist and photographer from Poland. He is a lecturer at the Academy of Photography in Krakow (PL). His works have been exhibited and published internationally, recognised by photography awards in the US, Poland, Japan and Italy among others. 

Tomasz’s work is inspired by various manifestations of nature. Using elements of performance and installation, Kawecki’s practice explores the intersections of fiction and reality, resulting in quasi documentary outcome. He applies universal symbols that are archetypes of society’s collective thinking, whilst the dualism present in nature and man is a leitmotif in his work. He is interested in old legends and myths.
