TAIPEI (The China Post) — Polish photographer Przemek Krawczykowski released a series of “Taipei Nightwalk” photos online last year, which drew much attention from the Taiwanese for their unique features.
The artist recently released another series of beautiful sunset photos captured in Taipei and announced his upcoming photo album project in an exclusive interview with The China Post.
In 2017, Przemek decided to take a three-month-long trip to Taiwan to discover what he loved and what was important in his life.
As a professional photographer, he returned to Poland and reminisced about Taiwan’s beauty while organizing his photos, and then shared his works on the creative work-sharing platform Behance.
For the occasion, Przemek shared that a series of sunset photos taken at the Xiangshan, Chih Nan Temple and the Grand Hotel, where he was lucky enough to capture the “golden hour” that lasts only a few minutes each day.
He said that he pressed the shutter to capture the moment when the golden sunlight fell on the city as the sunset was at its lowest point.
When it comes to the best place to take sunset photos in Taipei, he especially recommends The Grand Hotel because “here you can capture the planes flying over the city.”
It’s worth noticing that some of Przemek’s photos were edited in Photoshop to create a “cyberpunk” style.
He revealed that although the photos are edited, it’s not easy to add such effects because they must be under perfect conditions.
The weather, places are the key to affect the effectiveness, he added.
“Unfortunately, I can’t create such a shot in Warsaw or any other European city,” he said, “Taipei or Hong Kong are way better!”
The artist told The China Post that he is currently preparing to organize his photos taken in Taiwan and expects to print them out.
Przemek’s photo series will be available online soon.
