Maksim Axelrod (b. 1991) is a freelance visual artist and photographer born in Albany, New York. He graduated from SUNY Stony Brook with a BA in Sociology and Spanish. He is currently based out of Brooklyn, New York.
His work draws inspiration from the American social landscape; a mix of city grit and intimate human connection.
"I primarily shoot with film, which keeps me in the urgency of the moment. I often wander the streets without direction and welcome the scenes, textures and people that are exposed to me. My desire is to provoke an emotional response from the viewer, creating an opportunity for inner dialogue."
