About me

Sławek Pliszka - born in '71 - I live and work in Warsaw. In my photographs I am focusing on the subject of passing of time, death and on the impact on the individual of big economic and political processes. 

In 2018, I've published my debut book "S-21" reminder about the crimes committed by the Khmer Rouge regime. The book received a honorable mention award in the Photographic Publication of the Year competition and was exhibited at photographic festivals in Łódź and Athens.

I am attendee of 2019/2020 Sputnik Photos Mentoring Program.

When I'm not taking photos, you'll find me digging in photobooks, travelling and spending time with my family.
