Based in: Kumla
We are all living in an era of endless distraction and constant input. Channeling a sense of calm, Marcus Cederberg translates society s intrinsic need for a slower pace into minimalist photographs.
Striking in its simplicity, Marcus work immediately grabs the onlooker’s attention. Contrary to what you would expect, what most stands out in his work is its overtly minimalist nature. As Marcus explains, the maximisation of empty space allows him to foreground certain details: “With my images I try not only to make the viewer feel curious, but I also to tell a little story. And doing that through negative space can be a real challenge sometimes!”.
His work has been displayed at som of the largest photo events in the world and also graced the walls of galleries in Germany, India, Hong Kong, Denmark,Portugal and Sweden. Marcus is also represented at Fotografiska - the Swedish Museum of Photography.
His”less is more” message echoes from his Instagram where he has become a minimalistic influencer with over 195.000 followers.
