Biography

Marek Boguszak was born in Prague, Czech Republic, where he still lives. Photography became his great passion in his late teens and twenties. His development as a photographer was influenced by strolling through romantic, picturesque and – at that time – tourist free Prague. Photos of Josef Sudek, full of delicate play of light and melancholy, shaped his perception and appreciation of subjects, scenes and views. His sense of harmony was cultivated by his mother‘s work as a pianist.

After graduating in mathematics Marek worked as a sociologist at the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences and following the Velvet revolution of 1989 he became an entrepreneur in the area of market research. A few years ago he got the opportunity to re-establish photography as his principal activity and a great passion. Landscape photography – in Tuscany in particular – is his prime domain. Recently, he is creating abstract works revealing veiled frames, structurers, textures and color palettes of landscapes.

It's a Matter of Perspective

We often look at things too closely. Overwhelmed by details and particulars, we can't distinguish between the essential and the incidental. 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.

It's a matter of perspective. Choose yours.
