Alec Soth's PMH Jury Report
“In Max Pinckers’ brilliantly rendered photographs, all the world’s a stage and Pinckers is the stage director. But like the best theater, what matters in Pinckers’ pictures isn’t the technique behind the theatrics, but the comic drama of humanity." - Alec Soth, April 2014.
