PIOTR REDLINSKI was born in 1972 in Warsaw, Poland. He moved to New York City in 1987 where he currently resides. After graduating with a B.A. in ARCHITECTURE from COOPER UNION, a unique New York art school renowned for its synthesis of science and art, Redlinski pursued his growing interest in multiculturalism by moving to Asia. There he taught at the SCHOOL FOR ARCHITECTURE AND ENVIRONMENTAL STUDIES in Bombay. Upon his return to New York City, Redlinski has worked primarily as a photographer and a journalist. His work is widely published in THE NEW YORK TIMES where he most frequently contributes to the travel and Metropolitan sections. Redlinski’s work spans a variety of categories from portraiture and architecture to fine arts and reportage. His work has led him into the film industry where upon meeting Janusz Kaminski, a two time Oscar winning cinematographer, he worked as a photographer on feature film productions. Although his truest passion lies in documentary photography, his cinematic eye combined with a photojournalistic sensitivity has allowed him a place in the commercial photography where he seeks unique images that tell unconventional stories. Redlinski is the recipient of several awards including Nikon’s HEART OF THE IMAGE AWARD, the INNOVATIVE THEATRE AWARD, and the SOCIETY OF AMERICAN TRAVEL WRITER’S AWARD.
