as slick as it is dark. as polished as it is wild. outstanding work Markus!
Much like his work, Markus is a man of contrast. Tattooed knuckles, a mohawk and body piercings adorn a man who obviously bucks “the establishment”. His abandonment of a conventional corporate life and his reluctance to take on commercial work, stem from a personal refusal to compromise. Inspired by authenticity and story, Markus’ dedication doesn’t fit into a standard 9 to 5 cubicle and can’t be contrived by an art director for a campaign. Hartel says “I press the shutter button for myself, and not for the money. It’s not that I don’t occasionally shoot on spec… but any projects I take on must appeal to my aesthetic”.
Additional formats for smartphones and desktop computers will follow soon – stay tuned! Release date tba.
