Jean Philippe Kadzinski


Kadzinski’s involved, process-oriented approach indicates a distinct visual understanding and innovative photographic technique, while his stylistic touches are humble assertions of a thriving imagination. His passionate, inquisitive diligence makes his art a rewarding opportunity to unearth personal insights in the process of honing his craft.

Born in a small village in Lorraine, France, JP spent his youth in a landscape characterized by verdant farmland and industrial manufacturing, where the nature-rich town nurtured an exploratory boyhood spent roaming forests and hills. At fourteen he began an apprenticeship at a pipe factory. However, industrial labors lacked the creative, self-actualizing stimulation he needed and by the age of 29, this passionate sentiment took him to Paris, where he found himself in the fields of modeling and advertisement.

While in front of the camera, JP gained insights into composing images through his own intuitive movements and lighting direction. As he now sculpts visuals from an external standpoint, his modeling experience has granted him a perceptively dualistic relationship to the camera. This union of skill and understanding heavily influences JP’s aesthetic, which delivers vibrant representations of his explored realities.

French artist JP Kadzinski currently resides in New York, where he produces rhythmic depictions of the thriving city.
