Max Pinckers

°1988, Brussels (BE) - lives and works in Brussels (BE)

Max Pinckers is a Belgian artist whose work reflects on the credibility of the image, and the impossibility of documentary photography to claim its place in a changing world - where the authority of the photograph has disappeared as an independent document in the midst of the proliferation of digital images, 'fake news' and Photoshop.

Pinckers is part of a new generation of documentary photographers who consciously use means such as theatrical staging, image manipulation and conscious recontextualisation - instruments previously regarded as taboo. Max Pinckers' work develops into series: images that he brings together in exhibitions and self-published artist's books. 

In 2015 Max Pinckers founded the independent publishing house Lyre Press. He is currently teaching and doing a pdh at  School of Arts / KASK, Ghent, and was recently part of Forbes prestigious list 30 Under 30 in the Arts. The work of Max Pinckers is shown internationally, including at venues such as Fotomuseum, Winterthur; MOCAK, Krakow; het Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia; Bozar, Brussels; Foto-Forum, Bolzano; MUHKA, Antwerp; Fotomuseum, Antwerp; De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam; and S.M.A.K., Ghent.
