Polish photographer Lukasz Wierzbowski discovered photography almost by accident, using it as a method of relaxation in the third year of his Social Psychology studies. He found he had a natural aptitude for colour, composition and narrative and began experimenting with the people, patterns and environments that surrounded him. His images are thick with richly-patterned vintage fabrics, the patina of mid-century interiors and potted plants that come together with striking effect.
His commercial practice has included commissions from the likes of Penguin, Getty, Urban Outfitters and Saatchi and Saatchi but it’s his personal work we like best; the images in which he’s been completely free to experiment. His manipulation of environments with bodies and ephemera is second to none, affording him a breadth of practice that encompasses everything from fine art to fashion.
