Born and raised in the suburbs of Montreal, Maxime spent his childhood observing his surroundings whilst developing an eye for image composure. His exceptional passion for music and film are what laid the foundation of his craft. At the age of 16, he bought his first camera, which would finally allow him to capture and document moments of sub-urban exploration. The following years were spent experimenting and working with a variety of types of photography: documenting the underground scene of electronic music, building skill in portrait and commercial photography as well as covering multiple types of corporate events. Maxime is versatile and believes in the storytelling properties of a photo and thrives for an aesthetic based around natural light in order to make his photography both raw and authentic. His current work revolved around street photography, creative portrait and the relation between natural light and the subject. 

Maxime’s work is characterized by a restless searching in the face of encroaching familiarity. His images cast a scrying eye to the barest of intimacies, seeking hidden knowledge from subjects that at first glance have given up all their secrets.

Wether it is a place, a person, or an object, the subjects of Maxime’s photographs have one thing in common: intrigue. This underlying theme of mystery permeates his entire body of work, leaving me with questions that I rather remain unanswered.
