Mert and Marcus

Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot (Mert and Marcus) are a photographer-duo specializing in fashion photography.  The duo are one of the most sought-after and recognized fashion photographers of my time.

Mert, from Turkey, and Marcus, from Whales met in England in the mid-nineties.  While  one was a musician and the other worked in graphic design, the two had a fun group of friends that they would take photos of after going out to clubs.  Marcus originally was Mert's photography assistant, until they decided to join forces.

Mert and Marcus regularly shoot for magazines such as Vogue (USA and Italia), W, Numero, Dazed and Confused and designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Giorgio Armani and Fendi.
