Rick Majewski is a freelance photographer and videographer based out of Chicago, Il. He uses multi-platform tools to tell stories of the world around us. He is drawn to the vibrant celebrations, unique light and characters of all caliber.
He covers the human condition, the happy moments as well as the sad ones. The moments of celebration and moments of mourning. Moments of anger and moments of peace.
Working mostly in the documentary fashion, two of his longest projects "Weegee Halloween" (2005-present) and "Pilsen on the 4th of July" (2010-present) are about our celebrations. He is also currently working as a camera man on a full length film documentary about the torture saga involving former Police Officer Jon Burge.
He is always planning his next project, wandering around, touting a camera, looking for a scene with good light.
