Looking to statuesque women, automotives and travel as endearing subjects, Polish photographer

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.

A picture is worth a thousand words — at least that’s how the old saying goes. Our latest feature THROUGH THE LENS aims to see the world through the lens of various creatives. Be it a professional photographer, a blogger, a creative director or just a fashion designer who happens to have an affinity for taking pictures, each photo set offers a glimpse into the frame of those individuals who have captured a very unique moment in time. In place of textual interviews or written pieces, THROUGH THE LENS is a visual interpretation and platform for those who have a story to tell. A picture’s worth a thousand words? Enjoy the read.
