Max Parker

I am a photographer curious about how others develop individual interests and how this impacts on identity, routines and their environment. I am driven to continue making imagery surrounding groups of people.

My latest body of work explored how cycling contributes not only to physical well-being but also promotes mindfulness and good mental health. I did this by attending cycle races and I also volunteered at Bristol Family Cycle Centre. Photographing cyclists in both of these avenues gave me a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter and allowed me to streamline my interests within photography.
