3.25 – Jason Jaworski


In this episode, we are joined by photographer and zine maker Jason Jaworski to discuss the stories behind his brilliant zines, the relationship between text and image, how he got his start, the freelance hustle in Los Angeles, and several interesting books from his collection.

I was introduced to Jason’s work by our mutual friend Olia Yatskevich of 10×10 photobooks, and knew we’d have to have him on the show. Fortunately, a few months later Jason reached out to us because he was a fan of the show. He also mentioned he was coming to New York soon, so it all worked out perfectly.

Jason Jaworski (b. 1987) is a writer, photographer and artist best known for his intimate portraits, sprawling textworks, large scale performance projects, and deeply personal artist books, all of which have been published and shown in numerous exhibitions around the world, along with having been performed privately to persons as wide ranging as Ringo Starr and Werner Herzog. His most recent exhibition, Thinking Of You, was nominated for an ICP Infinity Award in the arts category, while an artist book he created to accompany the exhibition was chosen as one of the top ten photobooks of 2015 by 10×10 Photobooks. He also runs SSK Press.
