Hello, I am Max.
I have not had the typical education journey of someone of my age (18 years). Although I have struggled in some areas of my schooling, creativity and art have provided me with consistent opportunities to succeed and develop confidence in myself. Art is my greatest strength as well as my main source of enjoyment. I know that achieving my purpose in life is closely related to further developing my skills in this field.
In my journey as a photographer I would like to highlight my ideas on marginalised people but especially those with learning challenges like myself, the LGBTQ+ community and mental health. I also love experimenting with light and how that can change the message within an image.
Although I love all aspects of art, as soon as I picked up my dads DSLR for the first time and shot my cousins on the beach, I knew that it provided the perfect balance of every aspect in art I loved so much. Photography for me is a way to share ideas, open conversations and capture the moments in life to remember. I love that I can use this method to express myself while working hard to create something I can be proud of and, hopefully, spark something in others.
I hope I can spark something in you too maybe.
Much love M. <3
