Last year, the Sweden-raised Pole was tapped to shoot an entire issue of Dazed & Confused; he was also handpicked by Carine Roitfeld to contribute to the first issue of her magazine CR Fashion Book. It’s not hard to see why there is great demand for the 31-year-old’s coolly lit fashion images, which can project an eerie moodiness. “Maybe that’s just my Polish heritage,” Kasprzyk jokes.
Not all of his work is so portentous, however. One of his most striking photographs features the model Arizona Muse lit up by a wide smile. “That’s one of my favorites,” the photographer says. “I think the smile is one of the sexiest things a person can have—even as I tend toward melancholia.”
