Jan Masny (born 1975) started his photographic practice in 1999 in the photographic studio of Bogdan Axman, Krakow. He very quickly became independent and moved to London in 2004.
His main focus is in fashion photography as well as portraiture and advertising. His distinctive style has led him to commissioned work for Sony, Virgin Records, Toni & Guy, Aftershock Plc, Skanska, Degrees of Freedom, Music TV VIVA. His photographs have been featured in Cosmopolitan (UK), Total Spec (UK), Zink (US), Elle (Poland) amongst many others. He has taken portraits of numerous celebrities including Jamelia, Gosia Bela, Simon Webbe, Asher D and Lisa Maffia.
His photographs are simple and minimal with the aim of specifically emphasising their content. He is fascinated by polarities and contrasts of meaning, and his ability to extract often unexpected aspects from his subjects gives a freshness and depth to his work.
