On this episode of What Makes You Click, Kelvin welcomes Maciek Jasik, an award-winning photographer based in NYC and LA that critiques Western society’s relationship with nature and identity. Maciek and Kelvin have a very grounded discussion speaking on the personal experiences and psychology that is often behind photography and other forms of artistic expression, noting Maciek’s opinion on the most important aspect of creating art.
You’ll gain insight into Maciek’s Polish upbringing, the forming of his identity while integrating with American society, and the mindset of an immigrant that inspires a powerful work ethic.
He sheds light on how his love for political science and art converged early in his life, how his time spent living in Japan inspired his photography, and the overwhelm and FOMO that exists in being a professional photographer. Maciek even shares the most important lessons he’s learned from shooting portraits, including Ruth Bader Ginsburg and other notable figures.
