Rafal was born in 1975 and grew up in Bielsko-Biala, Poland. In 2004, when Poland became a member of the European Union and the borders were open, he moved to Ireland, where he has lived ever since. Krol bought his first digital camera to record his stay abroad. He had been thinking about photography since he can remember but hadn’t had opportunity to take a single photo until then. 

After the initial fascination of having a camera and taking photographs of everything everywhere, he has focused on minimalistic black and white seascape and landscape photography for the past few years. Nature, the seacoast and the mountains have always inspired him. He loves visiting these places, where he rests and restores his vital energy. 

Most of Rafal’s photographs are black and white, because he believes the lack of color allows an observer to focus more on the frame and composition. Rafal prefers prints in small formats. He likes when a person looking at the photo is close to it, to be able to see every single detail of the image from close proximity, and at the same time to be able to admire the whole frame.
