Max Pinckers
Will they sing like raindrops or leave me thirsty


In Will They Sing Like Raindrops or Leave Me Thirsty, Pinckers travelled to India for four months, accompanied by his partner Victoria Gonzalez-Figueras. There he has attempted to document, capture, stage and bring to life various specific aspects of love and marriage.


Max Pinckers (b. 1988) grew up in Asia and then moved to his native country of Belgium where he attained an MFA in photography with greatest honours at the School of Arts (KASK) in Ghent. Pinckers‘ work is largely oriented around long-term subjective documentary projects presented as photobooks and installations such as The Fourth Wall and Will They Sing Like Raindrops or Leave Me Thirsty. His work has been exhibited internationally, including at Bozar - Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels; Fotomuseum (FoMu), Antwerp; and Flanders Center, Osaka, among others. Recent publications include Time Magazine, The Guardian, De Morgen Magazine, and the British Journal of Photography.
