Pol was born with two different names to a French mother in a Hungarian hospital. His childhood hyperactivity was treated with theater, and theater was later treated with finance. By 27 he was a manager by day and a stage director by night. He then went on consecutive journeys to Bahrain and Brazil, to corporate islands and favelas. He has sailed on the shores of the adult industry and of militant feminism and launched a mainstream money making bar loss making in its indie art basement. Then he suddenly died of absurdity. He was reborn in 2015 and merged his two names and his contradictory lives into one where absurdity makes sense. Today he works on eccentric fashion, celebrity and fine art projects in São Paulo and New York.

Pol’s photos have been featured in over a hundred publications including Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, Marie Claire, GQ, The Guardian, CNN (online), BBC (online), Dazed, Adobe Create, Hunger, Sleek, Nylon, Hi-Fructose (full list). His works have been exhibited in the 2018-2019 season at ArtExpo NYC, Red Dot Miami, Lincoln Center NYC, Somerset House London, Juxtapoz Club House Miami, Shanghai Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Superchief Miami, Lumas Paris, Democrart Sao Paulo, Mana Contemporary Miami (full list). Pol also works on commercial projects for local and International brands: Risque (Coty Inc.), Melissa Shoes (Grendene) and Globo (the largest Brazilian media conglomerate). His main photo awards: Sony World Photo Awards (UK), Trierenberg Photo Circuit (Austria), International Photo Festival in Paraty (Brazil)
