67 Mert & Marcus Editorials

From Armored Nightmarish Editorials to Fervent Fantasy Pictorials

— May 26, 2012 — Naughty
The Mert & Marcus editorials show why they are considered one of the premier photography duos in the world. Inspired by the work of the late French fashion photographer Guy Bourdin, Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott embrace dark and often fantastical imagery that encourage and inspire people's own imagination and creativity. Not in the least afraid of digital manipulation, the Mert & Marcus editorials play with the boundaries of reality to seduce viewers into indulging their own fantasies.

Especially known for their portraits of sophisticated, powerful women, the Mert & Marcus editorials concentrate as much on appearance as they do on story lines and settings. The photographers pride themselves on spending as much time in the make-up and hairstyling rooms as they do in front of the camera.
