Tomasz Gulla – born on 14 January 1981 in Słupsk, Poland, at present living in Gdynia, Poland, a lawyer. I have been taking pictures since the beginning of 2003. Photography is my great passion, a springboard from dullness of everyday life, the field where I look for a different view of reality. I try to create something new as well as go beyond the patterns.
I am interested in seeking abandoned places (palaces, factories, churches) in order to make them vivid in my photographs and go back in time. I will soon broaden my artistic field of interest by metalwork.
