Marke Meyer


Meyer is possibly best known for his breathtaking low-key lighting in his photography. He uses lighting to effortlessly draw the observer into the beauty of the figure - emphasizing the simple line that his intriguing light picks out twisting around a figure in a specific pose.

"I am mesmerized by the warmth and plasticity and texture of real flesh - 'the fleshiness of flesh' - and the way the body shapes change when placed under different stresses. I enjoy the dynamic between the model and myself and I try to breathe life into my photos with this energy."

Meyer also has an interest in the 'abstractions' taken from man-made sculpture: buildings. These are compositional and colour based pieces that re-evaluate the picture plane and in so doing find a new way of looking at the familiar elements of the subject matter. As with his figurative work - these striking pieces (often in quatretych format) appear to be all about shape and light.
