Melbourne-based Australian photographer and portrait artist Max Fairclough travels the world in search of a special emotional connection with his subjects. Whether it’s to work with great artists and musicians or for more straightforward personal projects, Max manages to create a deep emotional connection with his photographers and is able to retain and communicate this through his shots.
An anomalous artist and observer, Max Fairclough knows no boundaries: he regularly travels between Los Angeles, Tokyo, London and Mumbai to document his surroundings and create unique dramatic portraits.
His photography is vivid, intense and theatrical, rich in shadows and contrasts and with a distinctively dark and warm palette. These aesthetic choices thus give a particular tone to his shots and recreate sharp and edgy atmospheres.
Max has worked extensively with some of the world’s leading record labels including Capitol Records, Universal Music and BMG. He has also been involved in several musical tours including Troye Sivan, Vance Joy, Dean Lewis, Bring Me The Horizon and PVRIS.
