Looking through and selecting different visual materials for Cruzine daily inspirational sets, we often think about aesthetics and the diversity of multiple forms it can appear at. One of the conclusions we made for ourselves is that today there is no, and, obviously, there cannot be a single standardized or canonical aesthetics. The world is diverse, the life itself is diverse, and so is the art… That is the reason why photographers and digital artists choose to depict not only pure beauty in its classical understanding, but they also often choose to show us the uncovered and undecorated reality – shabby houses, dead trees, or city slums. And that is not to give rise to some negative feelings in the audience, but just to show things “as is”; because aesthetics is not only about beauty, it is also about truth as well.

“Stephen Dalton’s photography has made his name legendary among nature lovers and photographers the world over. By freezing motion with his camera he has unlocked the mysteries of animal movement and this has had a stunning impact in the way we see nature.” Stephen has been an enthusiastic naturalist ever since he can remember, but his interest in photography did not develop until his early twenties. Then, after studying the art and science of photography for three years in London he merged his two passions to embark on a career of nature photography.

After spending a few years in Edinburgh I came back to Spain to study illustration and also attended one year of the illustration Academy in Florida. I am still deciding where I want to live. In 2006 I started illustrating as a pro working for magazines, books and advertising.These are some of the very fine people that I worked with.
Have you ever heard about the Wow factor? It is actually about something, capable to impress one so deeply that he says “Wow!” and his jaw drops immediately. For example, you are getting into a taxi and see that the cab driver is Brad Pitt or Jessica Alba (depending on your preferences) – you say “Wow”, and that is what people call a Wow factor. However, we are here to talk about the Wow factor in art. Actually, visual or graphic design in its multiple incarnations through photography, illustrations, digital painting, cool advertising concepts, graffiti design, etc., is a very powerful generator of the Wow factor effect. Look at the stunning photograph of the panoramic tree or at the illustration of the sexy British patriotic girl, or at the Chevrolet Mi-ray roadster concept below and you’ll understand clearly what Wow factor means…

I was born in Katowice, south of Poland in 1975. During my studies in Technical University in Gliwice I discovered my first passion – traveling. After a few years the second passion – photography, followed the first one. Up until now I have spent most of my free time traveling around Europe. I specialize in landscape photography and prefer the cold beauty and wilderness of northern lands Scandinavia. I started with analog cameras, nowadays I continue with digital cameras and using new techniques giving more possibilities in landscape photography (HDR, panoramas stitching etc) I exhibit my photographs in Poland and write articles about landscape photography and post-processing of digital images for various European photo magazines.
