".....The American Dream is a national ethos of the United States, the set of ideals (Democracy, Rights, Liberty, Opportunity, and Equality) in which freedom includes the opportunity for prosperity and success, and an upward social mobility for the family and children, achieved through hard work in a society with few barriers. In the definition of the American Dream by James Truslow Adams in 1931, "life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement" regardless of social class or circumstances of birth.
The American Dream is rooted in the Declaration of Independence, which proclaims that all men are created equal" with the right to "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness......."
My name is Paweł Franik.
Born Feb, 22, 1991 in Knurow, a small town in the province of Silesia. Currently based in Warsaw, Poland. I studied film and photography in the WST in Katowice/Poland, where I graduated Master of Arts Degree.
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.
I specialize in photography, motion graphic and film.
