Available for assignments and commissions of all types.
Nick (aka Mikołaj) Kozak is a freelance photojournalist whose current work is focused on the issues of community and identity, their inseparability and constant state of flux. He explores communities that are displaced, marginalized, and/or those carving out new social spaces out of necessity or a desire to redefine a collective identity. His curiosity is combined with a keen eye, innate sensitivity and desire for greater social awareness. By nurturing relationships with communities and placing a great importance on learning from the people he photographs, Nick is able to create intimate pictures that tell informative stories.
When he's not shooting a project or an assignment, he is practicing his craft through street photography.
Nick's work has been supported by the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, and it has been exhibited in Bangladesh, Canada, China, Great Britain, Poland, Sweden, and the United States. Nick’s editorial clients include BBC Travel, Fox News, La Presse, Maclean's Magazine, the New York Post, Postmedia, Report on Business Magazine, Science et Vie, The Globe and Mail, The Telegraph, Toronto Life, the Toronto Star, the University of Toronto Magazine, and The Washington Post.
He has had major commissioned projects with Atkinson Foundation, Facing History and Ourselves, Evergreen City Works, Loft Community Services, and Ryerson University. Nick has taken part in artist residencies in Dawson City in Canada, Tranås in Sweden, and Saint-Louis in Senegal. He has worked with numerous visual artists including; Blue Republic, Candice Breitz, Corwyn Lund, LeuWebb Projects, Lyla Rye, and Zbigniew Oksiuta.
