Whether exploring the impact of natural phenomenon, the nature of man, or midlife crisis situations, photographer and teacher Pawel Fabjanski creates postmodern work with a twist. The award-winning Polish artist effectively uses color, shape and space to command the viewer’s attention. He also has a knack for creating seemingly simple still shots that subsequently highlight a more complex narrative through the calculated placement of specific details. Intense colors and symbolic locations are key in collections that denote darker themes, as are costumes and sculptures that add drama to existential scenes. Intense and commanding, it’s editorial photography with an edge.
