the streets belong to me. photographer. poet. lover.
Markus is not only an acclaimed and published street photographer – he is a visual storyteller with a very distinct quirky and candid style… There is a grittiness stemming from over a decade of shooting street photography in New York City in his photos. 25 years in the graphic design industry certainly account for his stellar composition skills.
There is an apparent reverence and compassion that Hartel has for his subjects, and it clearly shines through in his work. And while he may hold disdain for corporate incompetence, he seems to celebrate the flaws of humanity that make everyday people beautiful.
