One of my fave photographic genres which is much overlooked. Maximalism.

I am not familiar with this intriguing concept. Does it refer to having many elements in the photo, each worthy of attention? Like the rooftop photo shoot, the diners, the two guys in the two doors, and the bird in your photo?

Yes. It is simply the opposite of Minimalism which ultimately ends up with an empty frame. In every photograph everything counts so it isn't just a matter of packing as much as you can into a frame. The shot I took 4 seconds before this one is not worth of an initial glance despite containing all the same elements except the guy in the door. I do like minimalism and isolation, but an endless gallery of minimalism can get pretty boring.

Maximalism derives from analysing wedding photography. My fave shots often have strong background support and secondary interest. When shooting a bride and groom I  aim to keep aware of what is happening around them.
