Tomasz Zaczeniuk is a 35-year-old artist who’s on his way to being a full-time freelance artist. He specializes in digital photo-manipulation as well as photography. Most of his images have a foggy, misty, or cloudy atmosphere that gives it a vaguely haunting feel. Armor-clad knights, ghostly boats, lighthouses, and castles are just some of Tomasz’s subjects. For him, the two most powerful things that affect the senses are image and sound. Which is why each of his pieces have a musical soundtrack. He said: “It’s strange but I can not think about the image without music. Every vision has a music background, (a) song that I was listening to all the time I was creating image.”
Dutch photographer Mattijn Franssen creates surreal worlds filled with castles, mountains, and desolation. He explores them all with his cat by his side. He started with drawings, proceeded to illustrations, and finally took a look behind a lens in 2004. Barely a year into photography, he tried his hand at digital manipulation and found out that he did it passing well.
