Lives in Amsterdam (NL). Works in Amsterdam (NL).

Galerie Fontana

Photographer Max Kraanen is fascinated by the role fear plays in society and in his work explores how fear and threat affect us. Using a variety of analogue and darkroom techniques to create his images, stretching the limits of photography, he makes pictures that can be strangely aesthetic but often have a darker side. The craft of photography itself and the act of taking a picture plays a big part in his work. Waiting hours for the right moment, on the exactly the right spot, he only takes one shot, one that must be perfect.
