Historical Correction Portrait Series by Maxine Helfman

Maxine Helfman is a talented Dallas-based self taught photographer, who began shooting still life and eventually people where she found her passion for portraiture. Inspired by 15th-17th century flemish painting, “Historical Correction” is a series wherein people of colour have their photos taken in the same robes and fancy headwear. Maxine orchestrates the light to play perfectly across the subjects face and dresses them in white collars and dignified black robes.

Although my photographs are “invited realities”, they are about real issues. Populations shift, gender and race are redefined, past definitions are challenged and the faces of cultures ans customs change. My works depicts those changes.
