Photographer Tim Maxeiner, born and raised in Germany, moved to San Pedro a few years ago.
In 2013 his photo-book “Home Alone / Auto – Allein zu Haus” (available in German & English) was published by German publishing house Delius Klasing. The book is photographed exclusively in San Pedro. It discovers the community through strange combinations of cars parked in front of houses.
Maxeiners work has been published in German Media like Bugatti Magazine, Spiegel-Online, DIE WELT, Zeit-Online, S¨ddeutsche Zeitung, Car Culture Magazine RAMP, Travel Magazine TRIP, Volkswagen Annual Report and Volkswagen Classic Magazine.
His photo-exhibition “Second Thoughts San Pedro, photographs from the San Pedro Bay Historical Society complimented with contemporary photographs by Tim Maxeiner” opened at Cornelius Projects in 2014. It got featured in LA Weekly, public Radio KCRW, Daily Breeze, Random Lengths News, LAist, San Pedro Beacon, as well as in the podcasts “That’s so Pedro” and “The Watt from Pedro Show”.
Maxeiner also works in the fields of video and multimedia-storytelling. Since moving to San Pedro the port community has been the main focus of his work.
