About MeAl Lapkovsky was born in Daugavpils, Latvia. He moved to the UK in 2003 and has been based in London and Cologne, Germany since. Al’s photographic work has appeared in magazines including The Times, Guardian, Radio Times, The Daily Telegraph and Black and White Magazine (US) among others. His work has been exhibited in group and solo shows, including the Royal Photographic Society’s International Print Exhibitions, “Compilation Europe” in Austria, and at Tom Blau Gallery in 2004 & 2005. Among his numerous accolades are such awards as 5th Polaroid International Photography Award, Ian Parry Award, Fujifilm Distinction, Kentmere Photographic Awards and International Photography Awards in New York in 2006.
His style is mostly characterized as being edgy, contents mysterious, and the mood - dark. Having said that, however, his unconventional approach - and as a rule the most unpredictable result – is set, on the contrary, as though to extract the deepest and the most hidden feelings from within. The main criteria are to see beyond the obvious, interpret as one sees it for oneself, read between the lines and stay true to your own yourself…
