Born in Barranquilla, Max Steven Grossman is a Colombian digital photographer whose work ranges from Bookscapes to landscapes and nature. He studied engineering at the University of Philadelphia, graduating in 1994. It wasn’t long after that he discovered his passion for photography, graduating from New York University and the International Center of Photography with a Master of Arts specializing in photography in 2000. These two studies, quite diverse, have helped Grossman to mold his photography into a study of reality and imagination. In his most recent series, titled “Bookscapes”, the assembled libraries only exist in his photographs. From photos of different bookshelves, he reorganizes them into creative digital compositions, whose themes include Hollywood, Rock and Roll, Fashion, Architecture, Art, etc.
