Photographer | Musician | Entrepreneur

Hi! I’m Marc.

I am a photographer and a musician. I like to take pictures of musicians onstage and offstage, I love to play the piano, Chapman Stick and modular synthesisers, and I love to record, produce, mix and master albums. And of course, I love everything in between.

The HANDS Project

I portrait musicians – but I do it by photographing their hands, the part of their body that initiates the sound, that plays the note. Explore the list of more than 250 legendary musicians already in this project like Joe Satriani, Steven Wilson, Carla Bley, Steve Gadd, T.M. Stevens, Nils Landgren, and many others, plus a virtual gallery walk with a selection of their hands.

You can even subscribe to my music and get the complete back catalogue along with exclusive unreleased music for free.
