Adam Pańczuk (1978) lives in Warsaw. In his work he travels to wherever he finds an interesting subject. He studied at the University of Economics and photography at the Multimedia Communication Department of the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznań.

His unique skill to tell gripping yet intimate stories with images has won him many prestigious awards including Best Photography Book Award in the 71st annual Pictures of the Year International for “Karczeby”, Magnum Expression Award, Grand Press Photo, PHotoEspana (PHE) OjodePez Award, Newsweek Poland Photo. He published in: National Geographic, Newsweek, British Journal of Photography, Le Monde, Esquire, OyodePez, Geo Magazine, Polityka , Malemen, DF Gazeta Wyborcza.
