Tomek Albin (born in 1981) is a visual artist, who successfully combines conceptual work in still life and landscape photography with commercial projects.
He graduated from the Faculty of Multimedia Communications at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań, and started his career as a reporter subsequently turning his interest towards relationship between individual and the landscape, as well as meticulous examination of its elements. Both in his art as well as commercial projects, he captures pristine, and perfectly planned landscapes that he manages to unfold looking at the places where there is no light – imbuing nocturnal spaces with eerily beautiful, cinematic mood. Work with long exposures and detailed compositions characterizes also his sterile still life photographs, inspired by geometry and sculpture.
His distinctive style has resulted in multiple collaborations with major advertising agencies and clients across Europe, as well as numerous awards including several KTR Awards (most important awards in the advertising industry in Poland), Epica Awards, and features in prestigious international publications such as Still Life Selected Views, and Luerzer’s Archive.
Parallel to his commercial activity, he develops his personal projects that have been exhibited in galleries all over Poland as well teaches photography as a lecturer at the National Film School in Łódź, where he leads advertising and conceptual workshop.
