Constantly on the move, Maxime is a young photographer with a passion for discovery. Born in 1990, he started by borrowing his dad's reflex camera when he was a child in order to immortalize his close friends. Photographing friends during their BMX practice, this first experience would inspire him to capture light and its reflections on a wide variety of subjects. reports citing Euronews.

Studying initially to be a mechanical engineer, Maxime changed his career path in order to study cinema and more broadly, audiovisual arts. He was always particularly fascinated by cinematographic aesthetics. His photographic practice later evolved through extensive travel, capturing the regions he visited during many trips around Europe and the rest of the world.

So far, in constant search of wide open spaces and enchanting atmosphere, Maxime is now moving towards a more narrative approach. The artist currently works on new projects with a social or historical dimension, with political and economic landscapes providing the backdrop to his work.

In 2017, Maxim made a series of post-apocalyptic images in the Ukrainian city of Pripyat, near the sarcophagus of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, where the worst nuclear disaster of the 20th century happened in 1986.
