Markus MAHREN

Creative Director | 

Markus Mahren has been working as an influential Creative Director with some of the most iconic creatives of our time. Peter Lindbergh, Mario Testino and Brayn Adams became his friends and partners in crime while they pushed the boundaries of contemporary aesthetics for luxury culture institutions such as Hugo Boss, Escada and Porsche Design. By living in a hectic professional life between time zones, Markus Mahren absorbs as much as possible from the different nations and cultures. He learnt that the contradictions between illusion and reality were not only something he had to use for his job. Topics like life, death, belief and hope have a strong impact on his personality and became fundamental to an artistic work series in his own photography. "Inspiration for me is the love to detail, the special detail in my life is my friends. Love the human and you get an inexhaustible source of Inspiration“ Markus Mahren.
