Robert Majewski is a photojournalist based in Montreal, Canada. He spent his childhood between Poland and Canada and spent all his free time during his adult years traveling through Europe and South America.
His upbringing and travel experience permits him to easily adapt to unfamiliar environments and to be open in terms of cultures and people. His studies in anthropology ignited an interest in documenting how humans live, how they express culture and how they interact with one another.
Through his photo and video projects, he aims to address current and pressing social issues, exploring how people organize and resist to phenomena such as gentrification, homophobia, food deserts, unethical real estate development and environmental destruction.
