Grégory Dziedzic

I am a French photographer and journalist currently living in the South-West of France. Around the turn of the millennium, in my mid-twenties, I left France for Ireland and became a lost cause to the travel bug. After one year there, a couple back in France, 10 years in Turkey and one in the South of England, I came back to my home city Toulouse in order to settle there with my newly founded family.

A jack-of-all-trades (and a master of a couple), I have also ventured into the fields of institutional communication, linguistics and web-design. My current photography projects include the production of compelling pictures for the talented budding Istanbul post-punk band The Young Shaven, an ongoing street candids series and a weird fetish on heavily textured walls splashed or sprayed with bright colours.
