Artistic statement

Stolen glances, tear-filled smiles and intimate moments play a part in every masterful piece of art; work that combines an emotive beauty with a modern realism. A self-confessed romantic with a swathe of awards to prove his technical ability, photography will always be Marcus' way of giving people a record of their love and their lives to share for generations — a way to tell their story.

I am so happy to have come across this series. I love finding different photographers and learning more about their history. Especially if they have become well known in the photography community. Where could I find the rest of this series, or is this the first installment?
