MATSEY DAKOVICH – TALENTED STREET-PHOTOGRAPHER AND TRAVELER-DOCUMENTIST

Maciej Dakowicz (© Maciej Dakowicz) is a documentary photographer and a master of the truly “street” genre. The Pole, who moved to live in the UK, but did not stay long anywhere, became famous for the provocative and even scandalous series of works by Cardiff after Dark, which he shot in 2009.
