Maciej Leszczynski – born 1986 in Elblag, Poland. Currently lives and works in Sopot on the Baltic coast. Self taught photographer, specialising mainly in landscape, cityscape and fine art photography. Often uses long exposure technique photographing in poor lighting or with use of strong neutral density filters. His photrographies are pure in form, have an impeccable composition and are moody, calm and still.
“From the moment I released the shutter for the first time photography to me became more than just a hobby. It is mostly an individual way of looking at the world, observing reality through the prism of frame and composition. The difference between what one sees in reality and what can be seen in a picture, which can be considered a glimpse of the world captured by a photographer, is fascinating. When taking pictures I try to go beyond the boundries of a human eye and capture the flow of time. What I find most interesting in photography is capturing light, composition and documenting a given part of the world in my own way. I take with me the places I photograph, forever present on my pictures. Each of them is unique. The moment it has been captured in will never repeat itself. And that, to me, is the essence of photography.“
