Max Miechowski (b. 1989) is a photographer based in London. Offering insight into overlooked yet everyday aspects of modern culture, his work develops new perspectives on group identity on both a local and global scale. His practice largely focuses on his local community and is identifiable by its sensitivity and optimism. Rooted in portraiture, his images elevate his subjects, employing a strong graphic vision to explore the ways that people and space influence one another, and ultimately emphasise the reciprocal relationship between the individual, the local community and their unique culture.
Through his honest and considered approach to photographing people — combined with the importance he places on bringing the results of such work for his subjects to see and participate in — Miechowski’s images are both a collaborative celebration of community and a reflection on his role within it.
