A member of the Imperial Russian Air Force until 1917 and after the Revolution served in the Polish Miltary. In 1924 he moved to Africa and settled in Léopoldville in the Belgian Congo (now the Democratic Republic of Congo) where he established a photographic studio. He undertook numerous expeditions to Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Chad, Kenya, Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Congo-Brazzaville and his work was widely distributed as large prints and photo postcards.
