Marek Boguszak was born in Prague, Czech Republic, where he still lives. Photography has been his great passion since his late teens. After graduating in mathematics Marek worked as a sociologist and in 1990 he became an entrepreneur in the area of market research. A few years ago he got an opportunity to return to photography. Recently, he has been creating abstract works revealing hidden structures, textures and colour palettes of landscapes. In 2020, he received the International Photo Award and his stand at the Saatchi Art Fair was one of the most frequently visited shows.

IT'S A MATTER OF PERSPECTIVE ...

 

The things you see here are not visible to the naked eye in the world outside.  When you look at a landscape, you perceive an impressive whole; well-kept fields, beautiful valleys, distant horizons, dramatic sky. But the naked eye won’t make out the intricate structure of a faraway patch of land. It won’t find the scenery presented at different angles. It won‘t register its full colour palette or even complementary colours. 

It's only when we take a step back and look again that we see things in a different light. New contexts reveal what truly matters. New angles make us think again.

 

What we focus on and how we make sense of what we see - that's up to us to decide.
