There’s no way for me to know who you are if you are messaging me as “anonymous” without a name or contact details. Please email me at maxim@maximushka.com with subject line “PHOTOSHOOT”. Thank you!

Anonymous asked: Hi Maxim, Truly an awesome body of work you have. But have you considered including non-CIS (assigned at birth) and more masculine presenting women? I think it's important, especially in the Black community, that their beauty and value be portrayed as well.

Rest assured that there are more women represented in this project than what’s shown on this blog. You’ll be able to see those in the upcoming edition of my book.

Thank you for taking the time to write. Keep me posted on your travels and we may just work together.

So very kind of you. Maybe you can be a part of it?
