Beautiful vistas and panoramas were shot in the mountainous region surrounding the Polish town of Cieszyn by Jakub Polomski, and can only be described as anything but grandiose. Polomski decided to journey extensively and shoot these majestic images of mountainous landscapes.
He also has photographs that were taken on the top of Aiguille Du Midi, a major tourist destination found in the French Alps. Specifically training his attention on light, Polomski is able to achieve a deep contrast in most of his images, creating extremely vivid atmospheres of deep enigma that is ever-present in his iconography.
The 29-year-old Polomski is a well-traveled documentary photographer who at present works out of Cieszyn, Poland. He is essentially self-taught in his craft. His interest in photography was sparked as he was browsing through an issue of National Geographic when he was just 20.
It was through that seemingly benign activity that the Polish photographer came to realize his passion. It was at that point that he made-up his mind to travel and shoot photographs of beautiful mountainous landscapes. Polomski has been from Chile to Patagonia, France as well as Slovakia. In his artist statement, Polomski described his intimate relationship with photography.
“For me photography means travels, light and time. I was born in 1985, but photography has started to interest me when I was 20 years old. Inspired by photos which I saw in one of the issues of National Geographic, I borrowed a DSLR from a friend and then it all began. Since 2007, I have been awarded several prizes and commendations in various photography contests. However by far the most important recognition for me is the “National Geographic Poland Statuette” gained for the first place in the category “Polish Landscape” in 2010.”
Polomski’s day job is as a graphic designer in a marketing department of a building company and photography for now is passion and hobby. His entire body of work can be viewed at his website.
