MEET THE ARTISTS WITH MARCUS BASTEL
ACCESS THE EVENT
A TALK WITH PHOTOGRAPHER MARCUS BASTEL
I am a photographer and writer originally from Germany I have been living and working in London 1997. I have a Fine Art background and studied at the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam and Sheffield Hallam University. Through my work I want to convey a feel of narrative, I have a fascination with the way we, through the use of media, have influenced our way of looking at anything and even the unfamiliar has become something we have experienced second hand and take or mistake for reality right across the globe.
I have travelled extensively across the US and love going down the little middle-of-nowhere roads, meeting the people along it. It is people and their stories, that inspire my imagination. They inspire my stories and when I seek to frame an image I want that image to become a stepping stone into a story. Sometimes such story is further explained, at other times it is one the viewer will make it up in order to place, catalogue and make sense of an image.
If you are interested in working with me get in touch and we can talk it over. I am based in London but free to travel. I am available for editorials, events, portraits, lifestyle and travel and happy to discuss anything else you have in mind.
My work is with Millennium Images and Plainpictures and I am represented by Anoukh Foerg Literary Agency.
