The way Marcel van der Vlugt shows beauty in his photographs is striking, a bit disturbing, but undeniably, beautiful. Revealing a side not often seen in glamor, let alone international magazine editorials and covers, the Netherlands born photographer does things like plop cheese and salmon on the faces of gorgeous models, or completely cover them in mummy-like bandages, crossing the line between fine art and commercial shots.
Indeed, Marcel has accomplished pretty much everything a photographer can hope to accomplish, including having his work appear in almost every top publication, shooting ad campaigns for brands from American Express to W Hotels; to exhibiting his work worldwide—from the Photo Museum at The Hague to the Louis Vuitton Gallery in Tokyo—and being awarded the ADCN Lamp for Best Photography and a Gold Lion.
