Hello, my name is Tomek and I’m an experimental designer and photographer based in Amsterdam. My interests range from rare coffee beans to photo books and from wide areas of science to uttering the most unnecessary facts. I also like silly jokes. And almost all natural phenomena.
I started working as a professional photographer in 2010, my photography essentially has one common denominator: capturing the beauty of reality. Whether it’s analogue or digital. I love creating pristine imagery and clear colors, with a hint of humor. I love the earth and care for the environment, so I prefer working with clients with a sustainable approach. My recent clients include brands like Byborre, Neutra, Tess van Zalinge, O My Bag and A-dam.
Through my fascination with science-fiction and passion for nature & physics I’ve started the Ceres program. A fictional space program with the aim of showing people how beautiful our Earth is by letting them experience the Overview Effect. Just as astronauts in space see how beautiful and fragile our Earth is, Ceres shows this without leaving its surface. Each mission is a series of documentary style images exploring the surface of a potentially habitable planet that could be a home for the future of humanity.
I’ve started making spacesuits for Ceres in 2018. By designing and manufacturing the spacesuits, I expanded my skills and learned sewing, industrial design, 3D printing, vacuum forming, and 3D scanning, among others. Slowly but surely, developing into a multidisciplinary artist.
I believe in setting goals that seem impossible to achieve, embrace that it will take time to get there, and start with the small things. Through careful and persistent work we gain the ability to achieve them. In 2022 I wrote a manifesto exploring the questions of how we choose our path, measure our success and what our purpose is in life.
I love the earth and care for the environment, so I prefer working with clients with a sustainable approach.
