Maida’s photography and video work has been shown at group and solo exhibitions nationwide and internationally since 2010. Her series New Natives was made between 2010 and 2015 in Hawaii with male-identifying aspiring models found through social media sourcing; its exploration explored identity, gender, sexuality and Hawaii’s unique culture and history.
Maida created Hot Shots as her MFA thesis short film. By deconstructing footage taken by her brother of two fraternity brothers at a college party, Hot Shots explored how intimacy develops among strangers under increasing intoxication levels.
