Hi, I'm Max.

„Contrasty, almost analoguos, Max Kling’s photographs appear as counterpoints to the uber-perfect, optimized camera and smartphone technology. Strolling trough the streets of Frankfurt, he shows us scenes and moments you could encounter too, but in fact often don’t. Our vision may be obscured, our mind set for tomorrow, and our eyes deafened by pin pricks of digital flood of images. These moments are captured by Max Kling, they dissect the clichés of urban life and give us time to evolve our own thoughts and stories. No image is staged; all photos emerge on site and impulsively. He abstains of colour thus reducing to the essentials. To “find beauty in banality – is what I’m all about”, Max Kling says.

After three decades’ work in advertising, he lives in Oberursel and mainly works in Frankfurt and the surrounding area.

Prints and pictures of his portfolio are owned by numerous collectors of photographic art and are also part of permanent collections of different companies/NGOs.“

Prints can be purchased directly. All prints are printed on Hahnemühle Fine Art Baryta Paper, and will be signed and dated.

Please send PM for any questions or requests. Your individual format will be printed on demand. Passepartout and framing service on request.
