Featured Photographer: Utah – Seeing in Colour by Edward Marcinek

When starting this blog we decided that from time to time we would like to feature work of other photographers that we believe make a great contribution to the “art of seeing.” Today, it is a special entry for three reasons:

  1. It is the first in the series
  2. We believe the quality of capture is astounding
  3. A photographer that we are proud to feature is close to our heart

First, a few words of introduction; Edward Marcinek, my father-in-law, was born in Poland where he graduated from the Wroclaw University of Technology. He immigrated to Canada in 1992 and was immediately taken by the beauty of this country. It didn’t take long before his passion for photography was re-ignited. His admiration of nature resulted in many trips and astounding photographic captures.

When Edward returned from his most recent trip to Utah, he called me to come over and take a look at his work. Part of the reason I was really eager to see the results was the fact that he took with him the same camera I recently started using – Fuji X-Pro1. While my initial reaction to this new tool was very positive I wanted to see more work.

When we finally got together three things immediately caught my attention: a well thought out perspective, the quality of light and the rich palette of colours. In fact they were the best colour images I have ever seen from those places. See for yourself.

While Edward is still organizing his vast digital library for online presentation, his recent work can be seen on his new website at http://www.netdoo.com/edward/

Make sure to check his website in few weeks to see more of his work. And don’t forget to drop him a few lines.
