Maciek Pozoga’s portraits of people are some of my total favourites. On one hand he can take on all the banality of a studio photograph (à la family portrait) and make it absolutely extraordinary with green-screen over exposures or a raw yet luxurious, painting-like sittings – which all make for great, unlikely fashion stories and editorial.
When outside of controlled environments, his resourcefulness with natural light and props and the obvious ease of his subject prove him to be much more than a technical photographer. It’s just something about the sporadic-ness of his photographic styles that makes me think he knows just how to capture a person in a way that really says something about their character and even more about Maciek’s talent.
