Photography has long been a medium through which we can capture and immortalise moments in time, freezing them forever in a single frame. Yet, it is also a powerful tool for exploring the world around us and the boundaries of our perceptions. As The Mad Hatter from Lewis Carroll’s “Through The Looking Glass” says, “In the gardens of memory, in the palace of dreams, that is where you and I shall meet.” Similarly, Markus Klinko’s photography allows us to enter a world of wonder and surrealism where the line between reality and imagination is blurred. Markus peered through his own looking glass, capturing images that challenge our notions of what is possible and offer new perspectives on the world we inhabit.

Markus is a world-renowned fashion and celebrity photographer famous for his iconic portraits of music icons such as Beyoncé, David Bowie, and Lady Gaga. “Through The Looking Glass”, features stunning photographs united under this theme. As Markus himself says, “I love fantasy. I’m not interested in reality. I try to block it out.”

“Through The Lookng Glass” showcases Markus’ incredible talent for capturing beauty, glamour, and the surreal. The photographs perfectly highlight Markus’ technical skill and creative vision as a photographer, featuring various textures and colours that create visually stunning and evocative images.

“Through The Looking Glass” plays with perception and reality, and Markus creates a truly unique and captivating experience for the viewer. So why not step through the looking glass and discover the wonder of Markus’ photography yourself? Whether you’re a fan of fashion photography and celebrity portraits or appreciate the art of capturing beauty through a camera lens, Markus’ “Through The Looking Glass” is a must-see.
