It’s not often you come across a photographer who is consistently amazing, whilst at the same time pushing boundaries. Marton Perlaki is doing just that, and all because his high school cancelled their drawing courses, forcing him to pick up a camera – something that can only be described as a blessing in disguise. With an already incredible editorial portfolio shooting for TIME Magazine, Wallpaper* and Spin, Marton is also the co-founder and photo director of award-winning magazine The Room.
Marton’s talent lies in his fascination with the ordinary which he explains in an interview for Port Magazine: “I’ve always been keen on capturing everyday reality by transforming it into photographs that suggests a world beyond reality. Most of my work features contrast in some way whilst striving for clarity and simplicity.”
