This is the first of a new series where I’ll be taking a quick look at the work of a fine art or travel photographer whose work’s caught my eye.

Detroit born Joseph Szymanski moved to San Francisco to study photography and never moved away. After graduating he became disillusioned with working as a freelance photographer in the digital age, picked up his old Leica film cameras and some Kodak Tri-X 400 and returned to the darkroom to create more artistic photographs.

The result is a series of gritty black and white photographs taken in and around San Francisco.

Szymanski sells his most popular hand printed photographs on his website, www.josephszymanski.com, both individually and in sets of three to six. Some of his images are also available through Imagekind and RedBubble.

    First shot is an interesting mix of raw sex appeal, classical nude, and a roughness of the analog BW. I guess, that is what the idea of Pulp Fiction would have looked like at the pick of Renaissance. A lovely mix of concepts.
