Meet the award-winning photographer promoting Gambian tourism in Poland

Dominik Skurzak is an award winning photographer behind some of the most stunning photos from The Gambia ever shown in an international magazine.

His photo book, Gambia, the Smiling Coast, won first prize in an international book fair held in his native country, Poland.

Dominik first arrived in the country in January 2014 and like many other first-time European visitors, he fell in love with the amazing hospitality, beautiful scenery and diverse cultures.

He was recently on a Polish commercial television network, TVN to promote Gambian tourism.  He told viewers: “It is super safe in The Gambia. I think safer than Poland. As a tourist, you are allowed to do absolutely everything. There are no restrictions.”

 

Dominik described The Gambia as a country of smiling people.

When asked by What’s On-Gambia whether the Gambia Tourism Board should target the Polish market, he responded: “Polish people are very open and very interested in discovering new places. More than other nationalities! The only problem is most of them know very little about Africa and they think it’s a dangerous continent with so many diseases. I am trying my best to educate them and get them visit countries like The Gambia.”

Dominik is one of the high profile photographers to ever visit the country. He has worked with different international media agencies, magazines and newspapers in different parts of the world.
