The standard twistor contour integrals for spinor fields of arbitrary spin are utilized for deriving a new set of explicit expressions for complexified Maxwell fields. Such configurations arise immediately from the combination of the field and wave equations for the system being considered with a simple prescription for specifying the relevant integration contours.
