Marvin is a community photographer. As such, his photography is a way to present the people and places that make our communities more than just buildings and strangers. He works with individuals, businesses publications and brands, to help impact these communities, build a connection, make them known and cared about. His work ranges from spaces and travel photography, to editorial shoots, event coverage and lifestyle photography. He strive for a clean, symmetric and polished esthetic in my images.
I love the stories more than any other aspect of photography. I am an immigrant from West Africa, so there is a ton for me to learn constantly about living in the US. And my assignments always introduce me to a new perspective of the human condition, a new adventure, space or person. I love this part of my work.
I have done a lot of variety. From portraits and editorials, to architecture and travel photography, I am always trying to represent any situation in the best light I can. I think what makes them special is the fact that I am bringing my perspective of constant discovery. I am bringing fresh eyes in the sense that I am a foreigner. This helps me see things that other people have gotten used to, in a new light.
I used to be a professional dancer. It is actually the reason I came to the US. I joined a dance company and moved to Hawaii.
