Piotr Łapinski was born in Gdansk and has lived and worked in Warsaw for the past 14 years. In 2018 he graduated with honors from the ZPAF (Association of Polish Art Photographers) School of Photography. He works for the Italian photographic press agency NUR PHOTO which partners include Agence France-Press and other international press agencies. His work gives photojournalists and reporters from all over the world access to images showing life in Poland. He specializes in “street” topics- protests, demonstrations, marches etc. He chooses topics related to the fight of minorities for their rights and for visibility in public spaces. His published photographs most often focus on the fight for LGBT rights and, recently, demonstrations organized by Belarusians living in Poland to protest against the dictatorship in Belarus.
