Polish-born Bartosz Wojczynski works as a computer programme designer and graphic programmer in Piekary Śląskie in southern Poland. He began to work in photography in 2011, experimenting with various techniques before beginning to focus three years later on the art of astrophotography, having acquired a high-quality Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope (SCT). Attracted to technology in general, his passion fits well with astronomical photography because this type of technique requires deep knowledge of optics and digital image processing. While photographs of space are attributed to John William Draper with a daguerreotype of the Moon (1840), Bartosz Wojczynski instead constantly refers in his work to Dmitry Makolkin, considered to be one of the pioneers of high-resolution lunar imagery beginning in the 2000s. ...
