Polish photographer Michal Karcz considers his art to be a means of escaping daily life by attempting to attain the height of tranquillity. Inspired in particular by the brooding and melodic music of CRAIG PADILLA and ZERO OHMS helps him to perceive distant imaginary worlds. His photographs represent vast mountainous spaces traversed by atmospheric lights, which encourage a sense of calm bliss for the viewer. While these images are composed using real landscapes, captured in the Polish mountain ranges of Tatras or Bieszczady, but also in the Canary Islands, the artist enjoys combining them in post-production, reappropriating reality. In so doing, he encourages the spectator to penetrate a phantasmagorical environment, perfect for spiritual escapism.
