Mixing both digital and analogue techniques, Romy Maxime’s signature style is defined by cinematic black and white portraits of people. Her work explores themes of vulnerability, joy and beauty with a special focus on women. The works of classic art photographers, poetry, and personal imprints from a life of travel are Romy’s key influences. After completing a degree in finance at the Wharton School in Philadelphia, she furthered careers in journalism and advertising, moving between Berlin and Cape Town.
“The series is dedicated to my friend Irmi and all women whose vulnerability, enigma, strength, humour, beauty, both inner and outer, inspired me. This is for you.”
