Marek Emczek Olszewski, born in Poland in 1981, is living and working in London since 2006.
Obtained his photographic diploma at RACC in Richmond upon Thames in 2011, however,
he is mainly a self-taught photographer, continuously experimenting and discovering new ways of expression. He is attracted to non-obviousness, light and shadow play, movement, reflection, geometry and extreme minimalism.
Member of Free Painters and Sculptors collective (founded in 1952 in London), Association of Polish Art Photographers and Association of Polish Artists in Great Britain.
Has exhibited in many galleries and art fairs in London, Kent, Brighton, Brussels, Barcelona, France and Poland, including two solo shows, where he has achieved recognition and significant sales.
Marek’s photographs can be found in private collections in the UK, Europe and USA. His work has been featured and bought by some of the world’s leading architects and interior designers, including
a high profile commission for Qatari Headquarters in London’s Mayfair and Candy & Candy.
Awarded with prizes and distinctions in competitions organized by Royal Society of Chartered Surveyors (Infrastructure Photographer Of The Year), National Open Art, Construction Industry Council, Compas Oxford University and American Society of Civil Engineers.
I use the medium of photography freely and instinctively,
at times beyond its conventional role, form and expectations.
Constantly experimenting, discovering new meanings.
Attempting to move imaginations.
From sharp, colourful geometric shots to soft and calming landscapes.
From intensely minimalist to intensely complex.
Looking for beauty and poetry in the mundane.
Hunting for treasures.
