Marcin Konkel

Cape Agulhas, South Africa / 2019

Hi! My name is Marcin and I'm a photographer.

I travel to distant and, often, less frequented destinations to grasp a story or place that I can bring to wider-attention. From the Mongolian steppe to icy waters of the Arctic, from the wild parts of Vietnam to jumping rooftops in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

Since many years I try to live by a motto where: "The greatest risk in life is the risk of riskless living". I believe that taking risks and courage are necessary to truly live one's life. My adventure with travel begun with two events - autostop championships in Europe and Trans-Mongolian railway journey.
