I am constantly looking to other photographers work to help inspire me in my own practice. I found an artist/photographer by the name of Dariusz Klimczak (1967), who was born in Sieradz, Poland. Since 2006 he has been living with his family in the countryside, near Leba. Klimczak is a graduate of the art school in Zduńska-Wola.
Like myself he has a real passion for photography and likes to produce black and white images in a square format. The four images that I have chosen are not in black and white but I chose these particular images as my inspiration, as they have a real beauty and quality about them. The saturation of colour within the images really draws you in for a closer look.
The thing that drew my attention to these images was that they were capturing interesting and sometimes out of place objects within the scene. I especially love the second image with the reflection of the trees and leaves in the water. It is simple in its design but it goes to show that with a bit of imagination that you can acquire a really effective and eye-catching image from what could otherwise be a very ordinary photograph. I must try and be more creative myself when I am taking my pictures.
Here are some more examples of Klimczak’s work. These are examples of the black and white, square formats and they are more surrealistic in their nature. They very much remind me of the artwork created by Salvador Dalí.
