Marek Boguszak was born in Prague, Czech Republic, where he still lives. Photography became his great passion in his late teens and twenties. His development as a photographer was influenced by strolling through romantic, picturesque and – at that time – tourist free Prague. Photos of Josef Sudek, full of delicate play of light and melancholy, shaped his perception and appreciation of subjects, scenes and views. His sense of harmony was cultivated by his mother‘s work as a pianist.
After graduating in mathematics Marek worked as a sociologist at the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences and following the Velvet revolution of 1989 he became an entrepreneur in the area of market research. A few years ago he got the opportunity to re-establish photography as his principal activity and a great passion. Landscape photography – in Tuscany in particular – is his prime domain.
He had a solo exhibition titled “Tale of Two Tuscanies” in December 2019 in San Quirico d'Orcia, Italy.
He participated in the “Landscape and Architecture” exhibition at the Black Box Gallery in Portland, Oregon in January 2020.
The Prague’s offices of Kantar are decorated with twenty of his photos, mostly from Tuscany.
The reception of the Palace Zlaty Kriz in the centre of Prague displays his panorama of Prague castle and Charles Bridge with dimensions 8 x 2.5 metres.
