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. Im studying Film and Photography on WST. 
For me photography 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. 

Commercial project:
ELLE magazine, Glamour, H&M, Velo, Alfa Romeo Italy, Sephora,

I’m available for freelance work.
Interested in purchasing prints? Please contact me.
