Mathias Wasik is a New York-based photographer, who has been published in The Guardian, Interview Magazine, VICE, Slate, Mic, NPR, among others.
His street photography offers a glimpse into the modern-day life in New York City, exposing both the glossy surface and darker underbelly of American culture pulled to the fore, ultimately portraying a witty, affectionate satire of a diverse and fast-paced city.
Mathias is a board member of the New York City Street Photographer Collective (NYC SPC), a collective dedicated to creating and sharing the art of capturing life in public spaces.
There are few cities that inspire the modern world as much as New York City does. It’s ever-growing, ever-rising – a kaleidoscope of American culture. With this series, I explore the theater that unfolds day by day against the backdrop of New York’s restless concrete jungle. My aim is to expose both the glossy surface and darker underbelly of American culture while portraying a witty, affectionate satire of a diverse and fast-paced city.
