Maxime Matthys (born in 1995 in Brussels, Belgium) is a visual artist and photographer. He studied photography at the Toulouse school of photography and design in 2015 and photojournalism at EMI-CFD school in Paris in 2017. After a few months working for the press industry, he realized he was more interested in including the viewer into a thinking process and allowing him to recreate his own story rather than displaying raw information, which now embodies his photographic approach.
His work focuses on the way technologies are affecting our daily life and are shifting our perception of reality. While exploring new forms of narrative in photography, he keeps documenting the important issues that are shaping our future.
His previous project “Tinder Generation” has been multi-awarded, and screened notably at the European House of Photography in 2017 (Paris), Camando Design school (Paris), PhotoZoom festival in 2018 (Canada), Les photographiques festival (Le Mans), Insumatra festival in 2019 (Indonesia), amongst others. His work has been published in various press magazines and newspapers, such as Le Monde, Libération, Knack Magazine, Fisheye Magazine, Philosophie Magazine, Le vif/l’Express Magazine, Moustique Magazine, La Croix, France Inter etc.
