Maxime Ballesteros belongs to a rare species of photographers, whose images speak the language of raw authenticity and deep intimacy, telling stories of life’s most intense moments and creating immediacy. Resulting from the artist’s sense for the perfect snapshot, his empathy towards his motifs and a unique visual language consisting of bright colors and the extensive use of flash, Ballesteros creates images full of poetry, personality and passion. Whether the subjective microcosm of a party night or a pair of high heels on anonymous legs, Maxime Ballesteros’s photographs pulse of intensity, theplay with sexually charged symbolism as well as juxtaposing opposites like love and innocence, excess and ordinary life are ever-present themes in the French artist's work.
Not only could we wish to experience the same debaucherous festivities as Maxime, what a delight it mustbe just to walk down the street seeing through his eyes! - Caroline Gaimari
