Max’s project Hide and Seek: The Dubious Nature of Plant Life in High Security Spaces, a photo story about his alter ego’s attempt to document ‘suspect’ plant life from high security spaces in London, is showing as part of My Secret Life at C/O Berlin.

Max’s project was chosen with 12 other works from 460 submissions, which were submitted as part of an open call. C/O Berlin explain the concept of the exhibition:

“Everyone is an expert in concealment and balances daily along the thin, sometimes very pleasurable line between complete control over a secret and the fear of it being discovered. With this exhibition, C/O Berlin invited photographers and artists to visually disclose their own secrets and provide an insight into strategies of concealment.”
