Maybe due to my background in mathematics, I like abstraction: pure forms expressing the core qualities of reality. Sand dunes are the most fitting material for my work. Taking a picture is just the beginning of the path. It is a search for photographic Equivalents in which simple lines form a new imagery, which evokes fresh associations and meanings, which in turn stimulate emotions freed from the original recorded object.

Photography of sand dunes, creative processing.

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.
