"Snapped some photos at the Ohio State Fair today. New hobby!"
-Montgomery Maxton's Diary in August 1996, age 16

Interview Magazine has also published his photography.
His 2008 National Geographic-published photograph, Barack Obama in Ault Park, sells for $10,000.00. A copy is owned by artist Shepard Fairy.
