Polish Photographer Pawel Jaszczuk, 1978, currently lives and works in Tokyo, Japan. He is a self taught photographer who began his career after graduating the School of Visual Arts in Sydney, with a degree in graphic design in 2004. Pawels's work strives to capture the beauty of both traditional and extraordinary style of living. "He has found himself in a still new metropolis known as Tokyo, a city filled with people of ancient culture, practices and beliefs, that has been catapulted into modernism through the rage of war into a nation that has accepted new cultures and new influences through technology and media." In 2009 his book Salaryman came out, about the lifestyle that entirely revolves around work at the office where the don't ask questions and follow the orders of their boss. Nighttime drinking is one way to relieve their daily anguish.
Earlier he worked on a series called Kinky City. The Japanese fetish scene is portrayed in emotionally charged and gritty photographs. A theme that Jaszczuk has photographed extensively in various projects.
