Honorable Mention / 2021 / Fine Art / Abstract
In Magic Woods
I love the harmony of sand dunes created by Newton's laws of physics. When I make light float upon the harmonious lines of the dunes, a colorful stream of light transforms Newton’s ‘B&W’ laws into a new animate concept: a new space of colorful combinations and strong emotions ..., human abstractions develop on the inanimate mathematical abstraction.
Hypnotic scents of deep woods in summer, cooling shadows, glimmering sunbeams passing through dense canopy. Silence, serenity and inner peace, disturbed only by awaiting for elfs to come, dance and sing.
Photographer Marek Boguszak lives in Prague. He received his first camera at the age of twelve when he started to experiment with photography. He was more interested in post-processing darkrooms and exploring exposures than playing with his schoolmates. His inspirations came from photographers like Josef Sudek, Ansel Adams, Alfred Stieglitz.
After graduating in mathematics Marek worked as a sociologist and market researcher. Alongside, photography remained his passion. His major method is to explore the unknown, the unseen in photography, making his photos a natural abstraction.
