Maciejewski, instead of storytelling, prefers single images. He builds a scene which is only a flash in a long story, in order to capture this moment in time.
Often he emphasises how important is his photography from New York City. In particular purist Manhattan with its clean, hygienic, sublime and orderly form, but also Brooklyn, more dispassionate, with factories and full of contradictions. - "In New York, fantasy is mixed with reality, fiction with truth, ambitions with infinite challenge. New York is not a place, it is rather a concept" he claims. But the images that we see, are in many cases universal. If we had no descriptions, we would not know whether they were taken in Berlin, Warsaw or in New York. Just like the shot of a sleeping woman whose reflection we see in the glass, or the man sitting in a bar, just behind the window frame.
