A submission from London based photographer. Daniel’s photography focuses on themes of recovery, psychology and mental health. Daniel completed a degree in photography at Brighton university in 2006 and has recently completed an MA in photography at LCC.
This project he has submitted Insulait ‘embodies a continuous cycle of recovery where chaos reigns supreme. Documenting the mind and body under duress and their struggle to achieve equilibrium, this personal work highlights the enduring search for light amongst the darkness. It raises questions regarding the discrepancy in how we portray ourselves to the world and how we truly feel under the façade.
Through a triptych of large scale images and a book of sensitive and emotional images the work provides a glimpse at a life of anguish entwined in hope, often prompting the viewer to reflect on times of their own emotional difficulties.’

Lee only picked up his first proper camera about a year ago and became fixated with it, so much that it even did his girlfriends head in, thats a sign of true dedication! Lee spent a lot of time on photoshop, so much that he then decided to scrap digital and go to analog and has never looked back.
Lee has his own site ‘the wax crayon’ check it out.

I came across his work whilst on Flickr, the images that Lukasz has up on his blog are definitely eye catching and all seem to have strong similar trends running through all of his work. The vibrant uses of colour and human body within his images. All shot on film and using various types of places to shoot constantly using interesting colours, shapes, patterns that are already there, and playing and incorporating them into the image.
Lukasz has worked with numerous high profile clients and has seem to of been given a lot of exposure though publication, interviews, zines and exhibition’s. If these images appeal to you check out the rest of his work.
