"I've lived here for the last seven years, and continue to draw inspiration from this complicated city every day.

My photographic work tends to flow in two parallel streams: on one hand I photograph people going about their life, trying to capture all the emotions through faces, hands, body language, clothing and all the things we do, that communicate so much about who we are.

On the other hand, I focus on all the silent surroundings - streets, objects, everything we live with, that influences us, and that we usually pass by. A full ashtray can say a lot."

All photos by Ziemowit Maj. Check out more of his work via his website.
