There is more to Markus’ images than meets the eye at the first glance. The mood, the light and the textures create a unique sense of space, making his work densely atmospheric, even dramatic at times. He captures the interaction between places, artifacts and traces of human interference, and presents them to us much like protagonists on a theatre stage. Perhaps ill-suited for the current times when images claim our attention from every direction, his photographs gently ask us for a little time and patience. Dive in slowly and you will be rewarded by a profound experience.
