As a teenager, Jakub rather by accident chose photography as an activity at a youth community centre  he attended. He became interested particularly in architectural photography thanks to Juliusz Sokołowski, with whom he worked for some time. He enjoys this type of photography, due to his reflexes were always too slow when  working with live models and found it difficult to establish a good rapport with them. 

Over the last ten years many new public buildings have been built, but this process has not always been so well connected up to urban and infrastructural change. Many of them sit like objects in a vacuum, or are not used as intended, or were merely investment opportunities created quickly for short-term political or commercial gain.. He admits that many times he was fooled by the outer shell, and the finished buildings, whilst beautifully designed, did not sit comfortably on their sites once built, or just did not function properly. But there are also contrary examples … take the Warsaw University Library - for a long time I was skeptical about this building, but today you can see how brilliant this project is, and how it completely changed the face of the area. h The Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw is ongoing. At the same time he’s working with architect colleagues to try and create something like an anthology of Polish architecture of the nineties, with all the baggage of political transformation, outdated postmodernism and the cult of money that comes with that period
