Born in Germany, Marcus studied photography at the Southampton Institute of Art and Design in England, received the Bachelor of Arts in 2001.
His perspective is far-ranging and anthropological. Spanning celebrity lives, from athletes to politicians, to surprising urban subcultures and futuristic cityscapes, he documents the human condition with immediacy and compassion.
Whether in the studio or on location, his down to earth charm and rapport with his subjects enables him to bring-forth individual uniqueness to his images.
His visual language draws upon personal experience and feeling, which is effortlessly translated from his free work to the commercial sphere. It is this connectivity between the subject/client and the viewer which makes his work so engaging.
Always aesthetic, often colourful, Marcus’ images offer a sense of familiarity in otherwise unusual and exceptional lives.
These art works can be seen in the collections of Foam Editions in Amsterdam, Netherlands, the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs Embassy in Washington DC, USA, Movares Art Collection in Utrecht and in many private collections.
