Max Goldfield resides in a metropolitan city and is a senior in high school.
Max's personal photographic perspective has been informed through extensive travels in varying cultures and geographies.
"I am often moved by things I see that I believe are most missed in daily pursuits. I question whether our disregard of our external world is intentional or subconscious, or if it is just just that we move too quickly in a world demanding so much in so little time. I enjoy the beauty found in quiet and loud moments and spaces, in the color and shape of discarded debris, and the command of the ever powerful force of nature. To me color is more than just a visual appearance, it evokes emotion, memory and thoughts all which can change your point of view in a way you did not know possible. I aim to use photography as a medium to combine all the visual arts and use them to make the viewer think differently then before.
I am intrigued by what separates the "norm" from the "unusual". We are living in a state where people seem to be pushing the boundaries of every conventional institution. I am interested in better understanding the reasons for the fraying of the conventional and the moves to the extreme. I want to understand ways to capture and perhaps channel both individual and collective dissonance to create better solutions for the enormous challenges facing our generation."
