He began his artistic career by taking staged photographs in which he contrasted the models with degraded and often post-industrial architecture.

Subsequent fascinations and technical experiments concerned the technique of rubber and its various modifications. These interests were partly conditioned by the fact that he took his first artistic steps under the watchful eye of the great gumist Piotr Perczyński in the photographic section of the Municipal Cultural Center in Drezdenko. Later, under the influence of After meeting Andrzej Jerzy Lech, he started to practice pinhole and contact photography.
