Photographer and writer C. Max Schenk lives and creates in Newburyport, Massachusetts.
Nationally recognized for his work in environmental conservation, education and advocacy, Max’s worldview is imbued with an appreciation of nature’s cyclical resonance in all things. Max studied under world-renowned photographers Cara Weston, granddaughter of 20th Century photography legend Edward Weston, as well as master photographer and teacher Harold Feinstein - working with Harold and his wife Judith Thompson to help print Harold’s most iconic images. Max also appears in “Last Stop, Coney Island”, a documentary on Harold’s life and career.
He is a member of the Tannery Darkroom Collaborative and co-founder of the Film Image League of Massachusetts. Grateful for the support and wisdom provided by numerous artists, Max is most especially grateful for the love of his wife, playwright Kathleen Miller.
Max’s own photography includes environmental and industrial abstracts that are created using a blend of traditional and modern techniques. His images have been chosen for gallery shows, juried art shows and private collections.
