Marcin Bera was born on the 13th of May, 1978 in Poznan, Poland where he grew up and studied. He received a MSc from the Poznan University in 2003. In 2005 he moved with his family to Bournemouth in the United Kingdom where he lives and works until now.
His love for photography started few years ago when he got fascinated by the South Coast of England, and he wanted to transfer his vision to the field of maritime landscapes.
His style is unmistakable. He relies on multiple techniques of contemporary art photography and especially very long exposure. He has created his own world of a unique mood, nostalgia, loneliness, and tranquility at the same time. His world allows you to escape from everyday life and everything that is so very human.
It should be noted that all these places, which he captures in his photographs exist in reality. But the way of showing it makes them just so surreal and beautiful.
So as he says: My soul, desires and dilemmas lie deep in my photographs. It is up to you whether you want to discover them. I wish you could see a different world the way I see it.
