An amateur photographer and evolutionist Pentaxian. Marc picked up his first SLR at the age of fourteen, but without a darkroom he grew increasingly frustrated with the tribulations of analogue photography. It took him a while to appreciate digital, but then he embraced it wholeheartedly. The unknown sense of hassle-free control, the power to give images just the finishing touch that would make them match his memory of a scene - it still seems like magic to him. Which hasn't changed his conviction that there is merit in getting things right in camera, rather than posterizing images to death. In a sense, much of his work falls under travel photography, as long as you don't take this to mean fancy exotic locations. It's more a matter of how Marc will approach his subjects, always trying to explore them with the fresh curiosity of a traveller who sets eyes on them for the very first time. Marc lives in the Lower Rhine region, near the Dutch border.
