About the Artist
From an early age Marcos Cortes was drawn to art. Being brought up in an environment of history, writers, poetry and music profoundly shaped his interest in photography. He wanted to discover the collective source of creativity. This desire would lead him on a lifelong journey to understand the human experience and capture it through a camera’s lens.
“My enquiry took me into diving deeper in to the enigma, journeying to many continents around the world. I have met and lived with extraordinary beings, crossed remote terrains, immersed myself in the shamanic forces that govern our planet and ventured and lived with cultures that differ from the environment we are accustomed with.”
