Welcome to my Seeking Beauty in Ordinary photography blog. I am Poland based fine art photographer, graphic designer & web designer. For almost 20 years, I used to work as an Art and English teacher at all school levels. As a designer working on commission, the needs and tastes of my clients are priority. While photography is my way of self-expression, my true love and passion. I took it up in 2009 and each day I’ve been learning something new about photography, technique, gear, etc. Looking at the world through the lens made me see everything in a sharper way, more consciously. I have learnt to notice beauty in things commonly perceived as ugly, ordinary as well as I have learnt to sense some mystic energy surrounding me each day.

I hope you enjoy my through-the-lens vision of a world I share with you on this site and find my Art language tips useful. Your comments are an invaluable feedback to me.For more information about my work visit my Painted with Light website. Contact with via my BEHANCE Pro Site.

Support Re-Imagining The World of Tomorrow Great Project by Walter Plotnick

These days almost each day new photographers appear worldwide. Lots of them are gifted indeed, shooting beautiful landscapes and other nice themes. However, it is much harder to come across a photographer, who has something important to say to other people. Such an artist is Walter Plotnick, whose great project concerning his solo exhibition and book publication is called Re-Imagining The World of Tomorrow.

Walter, to be able to organize this thought-provoking exhibition and publish the book, turned to other people for help publishing his project description on Kickstarter. Nobody better explains the idea than the project author, so I let myslef to cite Walter's words.
My work is a hybrid of wet photography (in the darkroom) and digital process. I am influenced by the work of Bauhaus, Constructivist and Surrealist photographers. Two areas of inquiry have fascinated me with their graphic possibilities – the “World of Tomorrow” themed 1939 New York World’s Fair, and vintage images depicting feats of daring as performed by 1930s circus performers. On the surface, these are two disparate themes. But for me, the commonality is humanity striving to reach its potential. The 1939 New York World’s Fair presented this on a grand stage, showing what was possible with technology, the right vision and will. Engaging science, art, commerce, and government in an inspiring display of imagination. The circus performers, working with little or no technology, took us to the outer limits of skill and performance using only the human body. Together, they offer us a thrilling picture of our own potential when we have the courage to take a leap of faith.
