Max Colson

Max Colson is an artist and educator based in London, England. He uses photography, animation and computer graphics to create films and installations that explore architecture and the built environment. His most recent work has found him working closely with online comments on architecture and landscape. He has drawn on these to produce films (such as the award-winning Construction Lines) which combine his interests in documenting the construction of specific architectures and landscapes with the strange, speculative viewpoints of armchair and expert observers.

Colson holds a MA in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism from the London College of Communication and is a an Associate Lecturer on MA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins.
