My name is Marcin Zuberek, I was born in 1979. I am living and working in Warsaw, Poland.
The phenomenons that attract me most in my photographic work are: empty spaces and noisy silence. I love all kinds of exploration. Peripheries of the map have been always my favourite destination point (maybe because apart from being photographer, I am also anthropologist;)). How does it feel like living on the edge of the cartographic grid? How does a place at the forgotten end of the map look like?
Usually, my intention is to create a visual impression about the metaphysical relation between a land that we are physically connected with and an open, neverending space where our minds are floating. My works are in-between documentary and creation made later on, in postproduction. Apart from my love for digital technology, I remain a faithfully user of analogue cameras (mostly Mamiya 7). Space and form are also a common theme in my commercial work as an interior and architecture photographer.
