Jan Masny started his practice in Krakow in the photographic studio of Bogdan Axman. In 2004 he moved to London where he now lives and works.
His main focus is in fashion photography was well as portraiture and advertising. His directive styles has led him to work with Virgin Records, Toni & Guy, Music TV Viva among others.
His photographs are simple and minimal with the aim to specifically emphasize their content. He is fascinated by polarities and contrasts of meaning, and the ability to extract from the subject often unexpected aspects which gives a freshness and depth to his work.
His photographs have a sense of romance, purity and seductive beauty all in one. These pictures stir up all kinds of emotions in me. The last picture with the woman with black hair and silver 'sequince' on her face is both strong and soft, sultry and pure, dark and light. The contradictions are perfect and the light is superb.
I love these photos.
