THROUGH THE LENS: Tomek Makolski
Looking to statuesque women, automotives and travel as endearing subjects, Polish photographer Tomek Makolski‘s work celebrates beauty and a free-spirited lifestyle desired by many. Cavorting between Berlin and Warsaw, Makolski blends fashion and documentation photography in his candid approach, taking viewers to picturesque settings through his optic. In this episode of THROUGH THE LENS, Makolski presents a striking repertoire from his journey around Indonesia. While Indonesia may class as the world’s fourth most populous country, in this profound selection we depart from the hustle and stresses of urban living in exploration of nature’s own offerings — taking to the mystique temples of Java, white sand beaches of Lombok, deserted roads of Lebih, and the vibrant festivities of Bali. Shot via a Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX7, Makolski provides an ethereal scope at some the most understated landscapes of Southeast Asia. Head to Makolski’s webpage to see more of his work.
