Piotr Pietrus ( I was born in July 1980 in Jelenia Gora, Poland. As I was 5 years old my parents escaped with me to Germany to start a new life.
In 1999 I went back to Poland, finished school and started the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw. In 2004 I moved to Munich to attend the Academy of Fine Arts, which I finished in 2008. Soon after that and untli 2011 I attended the Masterclass of Prof. Arno Fischer at the Ostkreuzschule, Berlin.
I’m living as a freelance photgrapher in Berlin, specializing in documentary and portrait photography.
