SZYMON BRODZIAK BORN 1979 IN POLAND. SPECIALIZES IN UNCONVENTIONAL BLACK AND WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY. THE YOUNGEST ARTIST EXHIBITED AT THE HELMUT NEWTON FOUNDATION IN BERLIN.
'What you see, is who you are' - says Brodziak, an economy graduate taken over by passion for photography. After quitting family business, he worked in various advertising agencies, assisting in fashion and advertising shootings, which today are his main fields of professional activity. His photographs have been published in numerous fashion and lifestyle magazines, including international edtions of Playboy magazine and Italian Vogue.
Still as a student, Szymon won Johnnie Walker Keep Walking Award for the constant fulfillment of dreams and the passion for setting new paths in the search of beauty. Since then he has obtained many international awards, both for commercial and personal projects, including numerous Medals at Prix de la Photographie Paris and the title of Advertising Photographer of the Year 2016.
During 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Brodziak has been officially acclaimed by FashionTV, the best black&white campaign photographer of the world.
At the end of 2014, Szymon has published his first photo album "BRODZIAK ONE", which presents nearly 300 black and white photographs shot over the period of the last 10 years of Brodziak's professional activity. The book contains a personal dedication from June Newton, wife to the legendary photographer Helmut Newton.
In 2015, Szymon's works have been presented as a part of "Newton. Horvat. Brodziak" exhibition at the Helmut Newton Foundation in Berlin, which made Brodziak the youngest artist ever to be presented at this pretigious Museum of Photography.
