Portraits

About Markus Hartel

Manhattan portrait photographer – Markus is a talented visual storyteller and has a very distinct quirky and candid style, with a grittiness stemming from over a decade of street photography in New York City and 25 years in the graphic design industry.

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.
