Skin Series

Zach Gisterak is a fine art photographer based in Brooklyn, New York

Skin Series was born by accident.
I am very fortunate to have a bright and spacious apartment in Brooklyn. I have big windows and I can use them as big light sources. One day, I shot in my bedroom in the late afternoon. I noticed the light was so beautiful and soft. My model was red head with fair skin. After I shot some frames and reviewed images with model, she told me how much she loved it. She also said told me how much she loved her skin textures.
As I shot more models I noticed similar effect on skin rendering …
This how skin series was born.
Skin Series emphasizes feminine beauty, shapes, and mostly strength and confidence.


    I am fine art and portrait photographer based in Brooklyn NY. My photographic journeys started in 2014.

    I took point-and-shoot camera to my trip to Asia. This is where I fell in love with photographing people. My journey took me to the streets of New York where I begin to do street photography. Then I transition to photographing fashion portraits and finally fine art genre.

    My style was influenced by Helmut Newton, Peter Lindbergh, Bettina Rheims, and Marc Lagrange.
