Maciej Dakowicz

Remember the name—even if you don't know how to pronounce it. He'll be very famous one day.

I came across Maciej Dakowicz's photographs on Flickr earlier this week, and was frankly stunned. His Cardiff at Night photoset [view as slideshow] is amazing. If this fantastic shot doesn't grace the cover of the next Arctic Monkeys album, there really is no justice in this world.

I am green with envy.

Curse those pesky Poles, coming over here with all their raw talent!

  1. Do you know anything about his method of working. Does he use a tripod? are any element of the shots manipulated ? What the hell possessed him to go to Cardiff?

  2. I don't know anything about his method of working, but I'm sure he won't be using a tripod, and the only manipulation will be tweaking exposures/contrast/colour saturation.

    This photo of his shows another photographer at work. I'm pretty sure he will be using a similar technique.

  3. I have learned a Polish greeting from a Polish colleague...it is pronounced 'KOOVA'. Apparently, it means peace be with you.
