Michal Niemyjski is student photographer based in Poland who has an eye for interpreting the beauty of specific details with his daily life photography.

Currently studying Visual Communications, Michal Niemyjski's work is impressive for its unique focus on what is often considered as mundane. He works with light to angle his lens at the extraordinary that can be found in the ordinary. His settings vary greatly, with his work including shots of public transit, forested landscapes, simple objects, plant life and abandoned homes.

What makes Michal Niemyjski's daily life photography different is his ability to seek out details that comment on the reality of the scene he captures. An example is the simple image of blinds blocking the view from a window -- which is interrupted with the leaf of a house plant poking through -- giving it a humanistic quality as it appears to look out onto the street.
