Margins of Excess: A new photographic essay by Max Pinckers
‘Margins of Excess’ is spun around the stories of six people who momentarily received nationwide attention in the US press because of their attempts to realize a dream or passion, but were treated as deceivers. In general, Pinckers is attracted to subjects that evoke the magic of imagination but simultaneously reveal the impossibility of an untainted personal dream: time and again we discover that the words and images we use to define ourselves have been unconsciously borrowed from others, from the past, from books, paintings, the internet or the media.

Interview in BRUZZ
Because it is not really about Rachel Doležal or Darius McCollum, their conflict, and their rise and fall, but about identity and perception. “All of the photos and texts are peppered with motifs like apparitions, weeping Marys, UFOs, or threatening white vans. Or with staged pictures of people mourning; photos that we took with actors in New York and in Los Angeles. These sorts of images have become conventional in photo journalism. They are pictures that we see over and over again after something has happened, because they are powerful and moving pictures with which readers immediately identify.”

Featured on CNN
Pinckers, a one-time member of the Magnum photo agency, said he set out to discover if it is possible to photograph this “hyper-individualized” new era in America, where people like Dolezal have created an internal reality that is entirely at odds with what the rest of the world sees.
