About Matt Laczko

Matthew Laczko

Born in Hollywood, Florida in 1995, Matt Laczko comes from a family of blue-collar people from mechanics to bakers to postal workers. Hard work and dirty hands are nothing new to Matt and his work. He takes inspiration from the world around him and the socio-economic plight of the modern left-wing movement in his photojournalism as well as the movement for increasing awareness of mental health movements in the United States for his own personal projects. Projects soon to come.

Matt Laczko is a 26-year-old Atlanta-based photographer and graduate of Kennesaw State that has worked primarily in sports since beginning his career in photography.

 

In 2018, Matt decided to pursue photography full-time as a career and used his personal experiences to help tell the stories of those unable to tell their own stories. His main way of doing so has been through documenting social movements such as Black Lives Matter in 2020, upcoming personal projects on grief & loss, and more to come.

 

Matt has worked to learn from creatives within his circle as well as working on his own craft while photographing the everyday person and athletes while taking his own experiences as an athlete into his work as he looks for the movement, expressions, and storylines in his subjects. He also looks to showcase the pure humanity in the everyday person through the lens of his camera and showcase the reality of the modern anxieties, losses, grieving, and pains brought out by capitalism, the stigma of mental health, and the disgusting right-wing policing/legislating of female autonomy as well as LGBTQ+ rights.
