max wanger


One could say that Max Wanger started young, he constructed his first camera out of paper and scotch tape when he was just seven years old. Years later, Max is an accomplished artist whose photography has been featured in exhibitions all over the globe.

Whether he’s shooting an editorial campaign or snapping candid photos of surfers, Max has a real talent for capturing the essence of a subject. His photography awakens more than just the eye, it makes you feel and long for whatever you are viewing.

We admire Max’s affinity for simplicity as it focuses on accentuating details that others may miss.

We asked Max to choose a word that ends with -ity that best represents him.

I've always been in love with negative space, minimalism and the idea of less is more.




We profiled Max to find out what he takes on his shoots.
