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. To experience his photography, check out his profile on 500px (click on link above) or visit pentaxphotogallery.com/artists/Madaboutpix.
