From the very beginning Max was able to utilize photography as a facilitator for creative ideas, reaching from studio to documentary photography. Partaking in a visual society, the camera allowed him to access places and events that are exclusive to limited access. The photographic process has defined his identity and every day life. While photography allowed him to interact with many creatives across several fields of visual and performing arts, he has developed many close friendships to rely on in life and collaborative environments.
