Photograph IO : Hi Marco, could you tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?

Marco Larousse : I’m a fine art street and documentary photographer based in Hamburg, Germany.  I’m also one of the official Fujifilm X-Photographers and I am working both in digital and analog. And most of my work is in black and white.

Photograph IO : And how long have been into photography?

Marco Larousse : I’ve started photography around the late 70’s, so I guess around 35 years.

Photograph IO : How would you describe your photography style?

Marco Larousse : As as street photographer, I love to find symmetry in street photography scenes where people are going after their daily routine in an interesting architecture and or light and shadow scene. My focus is on the scene while keeping the person anonymous. This way the viewer of the image can make up his own story about the scene and what the person may be doing and what emotional mood he/she may be in.

How can I get those iconic shots while still maintaining creative control on what you shoot?
