About Me

Marco Larousse (* 1973 in Hamburg, Germany) is an international analog and digital fine art, street and documentary photographer based in Hamburg, Germany. He has a background in photography of 30+ years. In the 1990’s he developed his passion for classic street and documentary photograph. He shares this passion in his workshops, books/articles, or public speeches on street photography. Marco strives to create a positive awareness for this important art form by documenting contemporary daily life for future generations in a world where cameras in public are increasingly seen as a threat.

Marco is also an accredited journalist and a member at FREELENS. He has also been producing photography related podcasts since 2015. In 2017 he co-founded PPN - Photo Podcast Network where he works as editor, host, and producer.

In 2019 Marco co-founded the German Street Photography Festival where he also works as a curator.

Artist Statement

Marco Larousse is very passionate about the power and importance of preserving contemporary visual memories for future generations. The ability to tell a story with only one image is what made photography his preferred outlet to express himself. Capturing unique unposed moments to document our contemporary daily life is a challenge that keeps him motivated each day. His work has been influenced by the work of Mary Ellen Mark’s style of documenting life with a lot of affection and respect for the subjects that are being photographed.
