About me - Irena Walania

Irena Walania

I'm an amateur photographer based in Kraków, Poland. Photography has been my passion for more than 4 years now. Most of the time devoted to my hobby I divide between landscape and street photography. What I also love is travelling, which provides me with even more opportunities to take pictures. When travelling, the most crucial thing for me is feeling the rhythm of the place, getting to know the people and their culture. Only then am I able to capture the uniqueness of the moment and place in my photos. I like to switch between the styles of photography, depending on the mood and feelings I want to express.
