Maxime Michelet

French photographer, born in 1994
Lives in the Paris region (France)


Driven by a keen interest in questions of territory and identity, Maxime Michelet turned to a self-taught practice of photography 7 years ago.
From queer corporality to the virilist norms of the French Southwest, through the socio-spatial inequalities of American and South African cities, his projects deal with the place – left or claimed – of the solitary body in the social environment.

With MP#02, Maxime Michelet will, among other things, pursue and deploy his subject “My brothers and
sisters”. By recreating, with adult siblings, daily or solemn scenes, he undertakes to explore with malice but also violence the question of the relationship of the individual to the family.
