Well, Asia (pronounced Ah-sha) is really the only Polish photographer I know.  And if you know me, you probably also have seen her mentioned in more than a few of my Twitter and facebook entries.  The recession has hurt many people for sure, but it has been particularly hard for artists. I figured I’d use this post to show a little love to artists and also shine a light on those from whom they draw the inspiration to prod on.  Asia’s use of landscape, storytelling, and color is partially inspired by Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, a pioneer in the art color photography, whose work was underwritten by Tzar Nicholas II and documented the Russian Empire from 1909 to 1915. Gorsky deserves his own post and that will come soon.  In the meantime, you can read about him at this link: Wikipedia on Gorsky).   And don’t forget to see Asia’s work here: Asia Kepka website (you may even see a familiar face!)   Do you know someone who’s putting on a brave face in these trying times and deserves a mention?
