We asked a handful of our favourite photographers to look back at 2018 and remember it through the photographs they took. From i-D contributions to personal pictures of friends, family and strangers on the street, this is Maxwell Tomlinson: My Year in Photos.

London photographer Maxwell Tomlinson has been contributing to i-D for some time now. Shooting Lil Yachty, Fionn Whitehead and artists showing at London Frieze this year, to name just a few, his images always have a distinct depth and emotion to them. Elsewhere Maxwell has contributed to the likes of T Magazine, GQ Style, and the campaign for our i-D x Stüssy collection.

I photographed Shame for BEAT in January. They came to my house and played Xbox for an hour before I dragged them outside to stand in front of this wall. Thanks to Hanna Hanra and Jonny Lu.
