Maxwell Kerr About

Washington,D.C. native Maxwell Kerr (aka Max Welker)is an imaginative photographer/artist/musician who is driven by an incredible passion for self-expression through art and music. His works are often noted for their unique style, originality, and creativity. Max has developed an innovative technique that blends photographic realism with the abstract expressionism that is the random byproduct of his "aleagraphs", a term he uses to describe his fantastic images. What is an aleagraph? The random influence of natural forces (i.e. heavy weather, solar flares, who knows what) on the visual image (satellite TV), captured in real time via the photographic process.

Artist/musician Maxwell Kerr lives alone in his artsy-fartsy loft with 30 guitars,300 Hawaiian shirts,a dog,a cat,a goat,and a squid. He routinely receives transmissions from outer space on his 60" Mitsubishi hi-def TV, captures them with his trusty Nikon CoolPix P90, dresses them nicely and teaches them how to behave, makes them really big, scribbles his name on them so everyone will know whence they came, and then sells them to very smart people who know good art when they see it. They are then proudly displayed on the walls and halls of purveyors of all things fine and beautiful everywhere, who turn to their family and friends as they point to the aleagraphs hanging there, and quote Maxwell Kerr, "A man can never have too many guitars or Hawaiian shirts!"

In addition to his artistic pursuits, Max makes music fun for 40 piano/guitar students every week and has been performing professionally for 35 years.
