Over the last decades, Marek—a photographer for more than 40 years—has shifted his photographic technique from manual analog B&W to digital color photography. With his wife, Magda, they have established a unique visual vocabulary by designing abstract artifacts in the last few years. Today, the duo creates and acts together as Boguszak, exhibiting and selling award-winning photography worldwide.

The pair created a unique photography body of work from their journeys in Death Valley and Abu Dhabi deserts. The Boguszak's sophisticated image processing images highlights colorful shapes and pure lines with breathtaking harmony.

Marek Boguszak In The Studio

I took digital landscape photographs all around the world and a lucky chance brought me to the sand dunes. Countless variations of their harmonious curves and shapes reminded me of the cleanliness of Newton’s laws of motion. Geometrical patterns of sand dunes in vast areas, undisturbed by human activity or even by living nature, create an unusual environment for a play of light.

More About Marek Boguszak

Question IconWhat inspires you?

Ever changing play of lights and shadows evoking my dreams and emotions.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

Unlike in my previous works, when I take a photograph today, I do not know what will emerge at the end of my work on it. The process of analyzing digital matrix from camera is quite close to a search for photographic equivalents in which recorded lines and structures emerge in a new composition. This new work evokes fresh associations and meanings, which in turn stimulate emotions freed from the original recorded object.

Question IconWhat are 3 words that best describe your work?

Harmony, dreams, fantasy.

Question IconWho are some artists that have influenced your work?

Josef Sudek, Alfred Stieglitz, Laszlo Moholy-Nagy

Question IconWhat is the most important tool when creating your work?

My curiosity, love in experimenting and my soul.

Question IconWhat is the best piece of advice you have been given?

Everything is possible, just think, try and do it.

Question IconWhere do you go for inspiration?

My wife, desert and music.
