Michael Jurek
Curated and award winning photographer
I am based in Hanover, Germany, but I spend most of my spare time traveling, often venturing to remote corners of the world. Photography has been my favorite passion for the past 15 years, and my love for it has only grown over time. My extensive scope of work encompasses travel, wildlife, landscape, and architecture, and I enjoy creating abstract art from all categories of photography. Inspired by the breathtaking beauty of the natural world, I strive to capture the essence of the places I visit and the unique people who inhabit them through my Canon lenses, freezing moments in time so that others can share in my experiences.
My photography has been featured in several publications, including 1x.com, DigitalPhoto, fatoMagazin, fotoforum, and Stern.de and I have been privileged to receive awards and honors in photography contests around the world.
While my portfolio spans a diverse range of fields, including landscape, architecture, abstract, and black & white photography, my common theme is always adventure. My artwork is driven by my mastery of composition, lighting, perspective, and colors, and I strive to simplify my compositions and eliminate distractions to achieve ultimate satisfaction.

My motto: I don't mean breaking the rules makes sense. I mean that there are basically no rules
