MAXI TAYLOR

Maxi Taylor is a London based artist whose practice employs the use of a handmade pinhole camera. Fascinated with the indexicality of the analogue image, she builds cameras from low-cost everyday containers, and uses these objects of low value to elevate the value of people who are discarded and ignored. Maxi communicates her personal experience and the wider issues of homelessness in the city by photographing people living on the street. She is influenced by photographic documentation that represents humanity and our society – imagery that questions morality. Maxi is devoted to educating people through her artwork and feels a responsibility to engage with her subjects. The production of the work is just as important as the effects created by the work itself. She has a desire to exhibit the craft and show the importance of process leading to the final image, which may hold present any faults and failures.
