A Deeply-Ordered Chaos A photography project by Maciek Jasik

A Deeply-Ordered Chaos is an evolving project of nudes based around ideas of identity in relationships.

Using his signature style of saturated color gradients and motion to convey emotionality rather than physicality, Maciek Jasik’s images aim to explore how we see each other in terms of others, from lovers to family to strangers to societal forces.

“Photography is so omnipresent these days that it’s become disposable, but I want you to have some sort of emotional reaction before you can move on. Like David Lynch, I very much want to delve into the undercurrents, not just show you what’s happening,”
