STEFAN SZARY IS A FILMMAKER & PHOTOGRAPHER WHOSE WORK IS ROOTED IN AUTHENTICITY.
My in filmmaking is rooted in authenticity: true stories, irrational motives, unscripted moments and the tension & beauty inherent to human life. Examples: sudden laughter, sudden tears, self-sacrifice and beautiful things that can kill you - like tigers and true love.
My photography practice is also driven by a focus on authenticity. Whether in portrait, fine art or on-assignment, my photography evokes intimacy, story, and the suddenly romantic moments.
Before becoming a filmmaker I worked in advertising as an art director for Razorfish in New York on brands such as Audi, Samsung and Kellogg’s, and for Canadian agencies Cossette and McCann on Chevrolet, L'Oréal and Nespresso. I maintain close relationships with the advertising world and am a strong believer in the growing trend of brands advertising authentically and honestly with the public.
I am originally from a small town on Canada’s west coast. I currently reside in Montreal.
