Jan Masny started his photographic practice in the photographic studio of Bogdan Axman. He very quickly became independent and moved to London in 2004. His main focus is in fashion photography as well as portraiture and advertising. His photographs are simple and minimal with the aim of specifically emphasizing their content. He is fascinated by polarities and contrasts of meaning, and his ability to extract often unexpected aspects from his subjects gives a freshness and depth to his work.
He has taken portraits of numerous celebrities including Jamelia, Gosia Bela, Simon Webbe, Asher D and Lisa Maffia.
