Wiktor Malinowski is a self-taught Photographer, Graphic Designer and Art Director that is currently living and working in Warsaw.Observer obsessed in his search for visual phenomena. Once mistakenly studied Economics.
â€œBodies and soulsâ€ is a visual documentary of my nearly month-long trip to Thailand.
While portraying streets and nature Iâ€™m looking for a graphic relation between light and shadow, stories and universal truths that are composed specially for me. While shooting this portrait project Iâ€™ve decide to push my own boundaries by starting to ask strangers on the street for a permission to portray them.
Thai people are open, honest and Iâ€™m jealous how easily they appreciate the smallest joy of living. Every single person that Iâ€™ve asked said â€œyesâ€ as an answer. Iâ€™m used to spend at least 2 hours with my subjects in the studio before I start to take pictures that are capturing the essence of a personality, those tiny glimpses of a soul.
On the streets of Thailand, during those 5 seconds that they gave me, I was surprised that in the viewfinder I was always able to see what I was looking for.
