Ed Maximus - Fashion and Fine Art Photographer

I was born and raised in Haiti. I moved to the United States in 2000 along with my mother and brother in order to reunite with my father.

I attended the University of Florida and acquired a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering along with a minor in Mathematics. During my final year of college in 2009, I picked up a camera as a relief from the rigorous course load I was dealing with.

What started simply as a break from academia turned into a form of therapy that has kept me grounded in this chaotic world. After graduation, I spent a few years balancing my engineering career and my passion for photography.I moved to New York City to further pursue my career as a visual artist and photographer in 2014. 

As an artist, my aim is to create works that focus on elevating the essence of my subject while simultaneously building an overarching narrative about blackness.
