Marcin Szpak (born 1978), a graduate of the Warsaw Film School at the Faculty of Photography, the year 2008. His artistic projects are intertwined with commercial work, within which he moves in the field of photography and film. Photos from the session with the designer Katarzyna Konieczka were presented in the British Elegant Magazine. For many years he built his portfolio taking part in photo sessions both at home and abroad. Independent projects are Radiograph, Very Twisted Kingdom, Sfinks, Silent, Stardust, Deep Blue, Four Seasons, Tabula Rasa. The artist’s pictures are visions balancing on the verge of reality and hallucination. He creates a fantasy world a bit cruel, a little erotic. We will find in his portraits, objects and fashion unusual registration of reality. Particular sessions are closed as part of projects that tell different stories. In 2015, he worked on the film set “On the border”, where he was responsible for the photos and making of.
