Name: Jola Lipka
Born: in Warsaw
Resident: mostly in Warsaw


Besides photography, I love...

  • New York City, Venice and Sevilla...
  • Internet and cooking;
  • Cats - mine, someone else's and ownerless
  • temperament hack horses -
  • Hans Zimmer and Ist piano concert of Czajkowsky;
  • 'Mis' and 'Forrest Gump', 'Sleepless in Seattle' and 'The rock';
  • margerita, alsatian Pinot Gris and hot hungarian goulash;
  • and - the most - travels. Far and close. Lonely and with a companion. To civilization and to wilderness. All of them. I love to leave and... come back.
    Because I love my home as well.

Besides frutti di mare, I hate...
  • discotheques and fishing;
  • reality shows and soap operas;
  • spending time in traffic jams (but I love the city, so I humbly tolerate them...)

I'm dreaming about...

The lazy holiday in Sicily... To eat manicotti in a wayside trattoria, to lay in an olive tree grove in the hot afternoon and savor sicilian Passomaggio...
