Kacper Kowalski is a Polish aerial photographer.  Born in 1977, Kowalski is a graduate of the Technical University of Gdańsk, where he studied architecture. After working in architecture for four years, Kowalski now devotes himself entirely to flying and photography. Both as a pilot and a photographer, he takes aerial pictures of natural and urban environments in his native Poland.

Kowalski’s photographs have been honored by World Press Photo (2009, 2014, 2015) and Picture of the Year International (2012, 2014, 2015, 2016), among many others. His first book of photography, Side Effects, received awards from Photo District News and the Moscow International Foto Awards. He lives in Gdynia, a port city in northern Poland. Kowalski has had two solo exhibitions at The Curator Gallery, 2015’s Above & Beyond and 2016’s Fade to White.
