#sundaybluesedit Sunday Selection @___backwords
Rebecca: This week Izzy and I chose this elegant image by Marcus @___backwords. Although I don’t know Marcus, his images make me stop and look for a long time. I try to decipher what I’m seeing. The photos are layered and require me to really slow down to find all the magic that lays with in its edges. Inspired by music, Marcus shows us his beautiful world through photography. Like me he hates Sundays because of the sadness that comes with it. He is a true Sunday Blueser.
You can find Marcus on Instagram at @___backwords. Happy Sunday.
Marcus: Hi, I am Marcus and I am jewelry designer.
I don’t know when I first started loving photography. I guess I always have. I grew up in a very artistic environment, starting with my great-grandfather being a painter and my grandmother (she grew me up) designing clothes for the affluent of her time, artists, politicians and musicians. And there you have my true passion: music. it rules my world. Everything I do involves music, I am always with my I-pod playing. I live in my own make -believe world. Music being the primary inspiration.
And I hate Sundays..they always give me the blues. So when I came across the #sundaybluesedit tag I thought this is it. this is either gonna destroy me, eat me up,. or inspire me. To be frank many images there have hit bone in their way, but most inspired me!
I like moody pictures. My aim is to make ones that evoke feelings to the viewer, preferably in a good way.Something that they can connect to, or draw a memory upon seeing it.
When I started Instagram I immediately started expressing my feelings through my pics. And boy it has been a horrible year for me. I am a very introvert person so I guess its my way of telling my story, how I feel. To cast my demons away. And I hope you dont mind.
Every pic I post is somehow connected with a song. My captions are lyrics of this song and its title is depicted with typography on the image. This one is Caregiver by Memoryhouse. Usually its the first song that comes on my mind upon seeing the pic, while sometimes I try to create an image that has to do with a song i have in mind, usually its the first. Nature being my second biggest inspiration. I would love to try streetphotography at some point but i am not yet comfortable enough shooting in the street.
I could spend my days carrying my i-pod and my i-phone and camera and just shoot. But I guess real life requires my attention to pay the bills. And my friends. And I love the way mobile photography has changed the way I see things. So much inspiration by using this platform, IG. I have also met some wonderful people all over the world with which I am on constant communication, exchanging ideas, feelings and ordinary stuff. This world is a great place and i am happy to be part of it. And i am elated, honoured and indebted to be featured by Rebecca and Izzy and Juxt. I can’t thank them enough for noticing my blues and include me among such great talent . Or for their brilliant tag, a true and devoted fan. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
