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 make ordinary moments meaningful by turning them into stories about societies and individuals.
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). His street photography portfolio has recently been published in Eyeshot Magazine.
