Max Pinckers’ “Margins of Excess” examines the difficult differentiation between reality and fiction in the modern media age. The notion of how personal imagination conflicts with generally accepted beliefs is expressed through the narratives of six individuals. Every one of them momentarily received nationwide attention in the US press because of their attempts to realize a dream or passion but were presented as frauds or deceivers by the media’s apparent incapacity to deal with idiosyncratic versions of reality. The project asks to what extent terms such as “truth”, “half-truth”, “lie”, “fiction” and “entertainment” are connected in an era of “post-truth”. The photographs are accompanied by press articles, archive material, and personal interviews.

Max Pinckers (* 1988) lives and works in Brussels, Belgium. His works are exhibited internationally and have won multiple awards, e.g. the Edward Steichen Award (2015) and the Leica Oscar Barnack Award (2018).
