Hello!

My name is Paweł Franik. 
Born Feb, 22, 1991 in Knurow, a small town in the province of Silesia. Currently based in Warsaw, Poland. 
I studied film and photography in the WST in Katowice/Poland, where I graduated Master of Arts Degree.
For me photography and film is something special, it allows me to hold moments in my hand. 
I especially like to shoot minimal scenes which nonetheless are dense with meaning, and hidden meanings in particular.  

I specialize in photography, film and motion graphic.

Commercial project:
ELLE, Glamour, H&M, Velo, GLOV, Alfa Romeo Italy, SEPHORA,

I am available for freelance work.

Interested in purchasing prints?
Please contact me.
