Born in Poland in 1984, Piotr Serafin spent the larger part of his life doing anything but photography. In fact, he only started about 6 months ago. When he contacted us he told us that so far he only photographed men. Of course that is never a reason to apologize. But looking at Piotr’s work it really doesn’t look like this 29 years old guy from Warsaw only has 6 months of experience with the camera. On the contrary. His works shows so much feeling, so much sense for light and composition, that one would think we are dealing with someone with many years under the belt.
The other thing that is quite exceptional is that Piotr Serafin chose a very sensitive theme for this particular shoot. He explains: “I wanted to show negative emotions that young guys face in today’s society. Emotions such as anger, aggression and sadness. Hence the name: I’m Mr. Bad Guy.” Though only active for half a year in photography, Piotr Serafin is in control of all he does. Not only is he the one to use the camera, he also designs the concept, chooses the locations and sets up the sessions. His specialization is fashion and portraits, which clearly shows in this exceptional set, featuring Gaga Models male model Matteo Galon. For his I’m Mr. Bad Guy project, Piotr chose an industrial yard and styling that matches the climate of the shoot.
If current life in an overpopulated world and overpopulate cities leads to situations in which boredom of not being able to find what you want to do to dissatisfaction and anger or sadness, Piotr Serafin is proof that it can be different as well if you take your fate in your own hands. Only 29 Piotr is food technologist by education but works as fulltime manager in a large cooperation. In his free time he learned photography and he spends every free moment he has to bring his art to perfection. The effort most definitely pays off. –BM-
