It is special for me to have Marcin as Photographer of the Week on 591. We have cooperated on some photography projects and exhibitions and I am a great admirer of his work. We also met a couple of times here in Sweden. 

I am really looking forward to present a selection of Marcin's work. - Mr Urbano

Another of the master's of photography. Marcin brings a high modernist sensibility that is ironically refreshing in the paranoid blankness of postmodern images. Marcin's images speak of the human spirit.
Great photographs, and a lot of good feelings.
