Justin Maxon is a visual storyteller and socially engaged artist. He collaborates with communities that are connected to his own positionality, making design and ideation decisions with participants.  His socially engaged work often seeks to challenge free-market capitalism, by challenging knowledge authority systems through repositioning members of society within the social hierarchy. His work has been funded by institutions such as: the National Geographic Society, the Magnum Foundation, the California Art Council, the Aaron Siskind Foundation, the Alexia Foundation for World Peace and the Center for Photographic Art. As a photographer, he has worked on feature and cover stories for publications that include TIME, Rolling Stone, Newsweek, MSNBC, Mother Jones Magazine, The New York Times, and NPR.
