My Platinum Life

Recently I started a partnership with Memorieslab. They are a unique concept that brings together hi-end analog photo lab and and an art gallery. It's so special because they have completely new approach to the whole idea. I would say that Memorieslab takes the best from photography and puts it together in a totally new way. I have always been admiriring people who are ready to "go wrong"

They made this beautiful box of polaroids of my Treescape project in last year and now we signed a contract for the Ansel project. Ansel will premier in season 2018/2019, but thank's to Memorieslab I can already hold first set of Platinum prints in my hands. First set of platinum prints in my life!

It is a very special feeling. This most beautiful historical process in photography, ultimate craftsmanship that is almost unchanged for 150 years can give soul and life to my art.

Thank You Memorieslab!

Neon sanctuary

One of the most fascinating and beautiful element of America's Modern West are all kinds of signs. No matter are they neon or painted with or without bulbs. For me it's a essential part of "wild west" visual culture, you'll find these signs from landscapes, citiscapes, movies and paintings. 

Most of this art have disappeared forever, but luckily there have always been fans who have saved some of these very interesting pieces of art. Thanks to that we can still see old originals and also experience today sort of a renaissance of old school neon culture. 

Last ferry of the Amazon

The rain forest always surprises me.
It’s my sixth time here and every time I’m rewarded with some unreal experience.
This time it’s a gigantic ghost ship -  a big river ferry abandoned right next to a jungle city.
Surreal… Unexpected… Magical realism.

Simon Callaghan

Right before Christmas I had some great time in Devon UK. I was working with the London based concert pianist Simon Callaghan.

Amazing area, really would like to work more there.

Olivier Stankiewicz

Olivier is one of the brightest oboist of new generation. He's a soloist and principal oboe of London Symphony Orchestra, busy chamber musician and oboe professor in Royal College of Music... But before all that, he is a great human being and another good proof why it's so great to works with musicians.
