Ed Maximus is a Haitian-born multidisciplinary artist on a journey to create works that convey emotions and portray the essence of his collaborators. Using photography, he is able to forge a bond with his subject while simultaneously capture a transient moment that can serve as a reference point for further exploration.

Maximus presently lives in Jersey City, NJ. In 2021, he won a Fellowship from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts to further his artistic journey. He is currently continuing his project For Colored Girls through both photography and painting while working on a new series of sculptures.
