Breathtaking Silhouettes Taken from Afar

Josh Adamski has captured stunning images and turned them into works of fine art with his keen eye. He was born and raised in the UK and is now based in Israel. Much of Adamski’s work is focused around water as he lives near the beach and draws inspiration from the sea. After a photograph is taken, editing takes place to make the image more abstract and turn it into something even more powerful.

The colors that Adamski brings out in his photos work well together and really turn the photograph in a specific direction. His use of silhouettes for most of the people in his photographs add an element of intrigue to the already mysterious works. All of the smooth lines and blurring certain parts of the image give a calm feel to the photographs. Adamski’s work transports us to a peaceful yet powerful land that simply takes our breath away.
