Maurice Masdeu is a photographer currently interested in street photography, fine art photography, and documentary work. While he has had an interest in photography since childhood, he first truly immersed himself in the craft after being medically retired from the military for left eye blindness. He uses his images as both artful expression and therapy.
Maurice joined the the US Army at 17 years old and enjoyed a 21 year career which ended in 2018 due to blindness, leaving him medically retired. His military service informs his work. As new projects are accepted, his military nature ensures any adversity is met with the same diligence, hard work, exceptional technique, and imagination that propelled his highly decorated career. He currently holds a masters degree in medicine and is a doctoral candidate in health science.
