G.S. Broz is a photographer and commercial filmmaker based in Shanghai where he has lived and worked since 2008. In 2014, Broz opened his own photography gallery on the second floor of The One Teahouse in Xin Chang Ancient Town, displaying several of his photographic series. A graduate of the University of Pittsburgh with a B.A. in Film Studies (1999), Broz’s photographic career developed concurrently with his extensive employment as a video engineer and live camera director, working on projects as varied as corporate press conferences, short documentaries, marketing and promotional videos, music videos and feature films. Discovering his passion for photography after acquiring a digital camera and experimenting with various equipment and methods, Broz fell in love with analogue photography, finding the traditional photographic process a more spiritual medium of thought transmission. Inspired by the energy of Shanghai, Broz’s photographs maintain a cinematic quality related to his training and pedigree as a filmmaker. Through his ongoing projects and the photographic series on display at his gallery, Broz’s works frequently examine themes of consciousness, spirituality and ethics as they relate to his relationship with Shanghai and his unique perspective as an outsider living in Asia. Branching out from just China in the past few years, he has recently completed his largest project to date which explores the Christian Iconography of Mumbai. With projects in North America and Europe planned for 2018-2020, Broz looks to deepen his portfolio beyond the Asian themes that have been the mainstay of his work until now.
