Ed Maximus

is based in NYC. Born and raised in Haiti and moved to the US in 2000. Once in college at The University of Florida, he channeled his profound interest in science and problem solving into a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and a Minor in Mathematics.

In 2009 during his final year of formal education, he picked up a camera as a relief from the rigorous course load. And what started as a simple break from academia turned into a form of therapy that have helped him stay grounded in this chaotic world. Post-graduation, he spent his time balancing his engineering career and his new-found love for photography.

In 2014 he made the move to New York City to further pursue his career in photography and visual art. Combining his technical and precise eye with his bold point of view, Ed Maximus creates both fashion and fine art work that focus on the essence of his subjects. His most recent works include Black Museum, which was published as an online photo series for Italian Vogue, and his first solo exhibition For Colored Girls.
