BIO | Marcin Piekalkiewicz is a photographer born in Warsaw, Poland, currently based in Malta. He studied electrical engineering, socioeconomics, and Italian literature, but his genuine interest in people made him then switch to street photography. He defines it as an artistic opportunity to document life being lived in public spaces, a unique chance to make ordinary moments extraordinary and to make simple people special. He has followed workshops with David Gibson and Matt Stuart. Both encounters have had a significant influence on his work. Some of his individual documentary projects were exhibited in various locations in Italy and received attention from ANSA (Italian Associated Press National Agency).
