Kaitlin Maxwell is a photographer currently based out of Los Angeles, California. She was born in South Florida, a space that still plays a significant role throughout her work. She received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2016 and her MFA from Yale School of Art in 2019, where she was awarded the Richard Benson Prize. She dissects her life through her images to try and understand who she is and where she originates. With a particular focus on natural light, which often acts as a broad character subject itself, she analyzes the intimate ways in which people close to her interact with themselves and the world. Kaitlin is fascinated by the human condition. Her work seeks to understand and interact with this concept of how we navigate our uniquely challenging ways of being. Her work acts as a window into her life and an encapsulation of her attempt at dissecting the issues of self-reflection, identity, sexuality, femininity, and objectification. She aims to share her own experience of doing so with the world.
