Whoever sees the images made by the Polish Jakub Polomski should soon imagine him venturing into climbing dangerous places to capture the beautiful photographs he makes of mountains, his favorite subject. We could scarcely imagine that he trembles with fear while enduring height.
He says he has tried to challenge himself to climb to the top of the mountains a few times, but he always ends up with his legs shaking as the rest of his body becomes paralyzed. Most of his photos are made from places that anyone, even without climbing ability, can reach.
This is not the only curiosity about his career. He started shooting at age 20 after reading an issue of National Geographic magazine. Jakub asked for the camera of a friend on loan and began taking pictures of landscapes. He published them in photo forums and took the advice to improve his technique. [more]
