"I was really amazed by the pictures. I would just go for a stroll downtown and admire the wonderful architecture, the landscape, the city scape, and it became a part of my Sunday afternoon routine," he said.
The weekly routine then turned into his publication of "Sundays in the City: A Snapshot in time of Utica, New York."
Jozef's first book came out in 2010, and a new project in the city gave him the idea to publish again.
"The second book was sparked by the creation of the roundabout. I didn't have that in the first book, and I decided that Utica has changed a lot over the last couple of years, and it's headed in a great direction. I just wanted to capture some more of the city," he said.
With a variety of photos ranging from Union Station, the Bagg's Tavern, and even wildlife, Jozef says he wants to be able to preserve the history of Utica through his snapshots.
"It's important just to capture these moments in time. They'll never come back. Buildings are built, buildings are torn down, the landscape changes, people move in and out of the city," said Malinowski.
And as a proud resident of The Mohawk Valley, Jozef also wants to promote this area.
"We have such a diverse culture here in this city, and I want to show people the wonderful aspects of our city," he said.
