Life and work

Podlesnik's work includes obscured and reflected self portraits, observation of light and pattern, and journalistic glimpses of everyday life.

He is currently a Visual Arts Adjunct Faculty at Stockton University in New Jersey,[1] and is Facilitator for the Digital Photography Cornell Certificate Program.[2] He received his Master of Fine Arts in drawing and painting from Cornell University and earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in drawing and painting at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.

At age 18, while working in a factory in Beloit, Wisconsin, Podlesnik fell 50 feet from an overhead crane. He barely missed a pile of metal debris, but broke his right leg and injured his lower back. He spent six weeks in the hospital.[3]

While rehabilitating, he choose to study film at the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee.[4] He changed his major to drawing and painting as he became more focused on life drawing.

Podlesnik trained in painting and drawing, but is currently focusing on photography. "Yes, I’m trained in drawing and painting and, like many, have used photographs as sources from which to draw and paint. I think it was when I started using photography to teach design fundamentals that I started to try my hand at taking photographs."[5] His experience with painting is reflected in his photos.[6]
