Markus is more than just a good friend that I've known since our joint studies. He is a philosopher, thinker, poet, eccentric, a chaotic individual and someone who has illustrated lovable children's books. He likes to brew a pot of Green Tea and makes his home workplace to the most comfortable place on earth. Whenever I visit him, I get a sense of distant exotic lands. A foreign world, that you would like to taste. A microcosm, hidden like a pearl behind the gray facades. I am inspired by his unique appearance and surroundings and that's why I finally wanted to capture Markus’s portrait in his natural and wayward environment after all these years of friendship.
