Bio

Originally from northern England, Brandon Tauszik is a documentary artist currently residing in Oakland, California. His work examines the intersectional mechanics of human experience.

Tauszik’s most recent works have incorporated the largely unexplored medium of GIF, forming a delicate hybrid between the still and moving image. Tapered Throne (2015), Tauszik's GIF-based portrait of Oakland’s black barbers, was the first of it’s kind to incorporate live-action GIFs in the documentary art space. The project received reviews from Slate, Medium, TIME and many more. It was exhibited at SOMArts in San Francisco and Archive Gallery in London.

Commissioned by the International Committee of the Red Cross, Syria Street (2017) saw Tauszik evolve in his groundbreaking use of GIFs, this time to tell the story of sectarian clashes in Lebanon. The project received reviews from The Creators Project, Feature Shoot, Group Study and many more. It was exhibited at Electric Objects in New York City.

Tauszik hopes to continue pushing the possibilities of the photographic medium through innovative capture techniques and display experiences on the internet.
