Brazilian Marcelo now lives and works in NYC but his photography regularly takes him worldwide. He starting out in fashion editorial with affiliations to the first issues of titles such as Purple, Self Service & Visionaire, and is now synonymous with unsurpassed portraiture. My favourite thing about Marcelo’s work is his new venture into sculpture. It’s rare for a photographer to step out from behind the lens and Marcelo has successfully stamped out a signature style of incorporating his 3D work as set design. It all started using the cushions in his flat as spontaneous props, but developed into a fascination with padded shapes and graphic scenarios.
