#14 Chris Maggio

Chris Maggio is a photographer living in NYC with 8.6 million of his closest friends. Often exploring the quotidian details of American cities and their tourism, his documentary practice sits at the intersection of both observational and staged photography.

He examines the humanity and hidden complexities of humour in everyday life. His hybrid practice crosses documentary, fashion, portraiture all laced with his signature intervention. While his work feels loose and organic, every inch of the frame is deeply considered. He’s interested in challenging truth in a playful yet profound way.

Gem Fletcher talks to Chris Maggio about his process, storytelling, and what it takes to shoot candidly on the street.
