Marcus Tomlinson began his career as a portrait, fashion and art photographer specializing in exhibition commissions from the fashion world’s elite. He has created room set installations, films and photography for Hussein Chalayan, Christian Lacroix, Koji Tatsuno and Issey Miyake. Marcus still collaborates with designers on one-off couture pieces made for their private collections.

A two year commission to photograph George and Olivia Harrison’s gardens established new techniques and processes in his fashion works, and nature quickly became his palette. This commission then led to a ‘seasonal series’ within the London parks, which inclued St. James. His alchemistic approach produced photographs that were mistaken for paintings, and are still part of the private collection of Hermes President Pierre Alexis Dumas.

The Introduction of sculpture to his oeuvre was a natural progression. Tomlinson is creating a “garden” using photography, film and sculptures. Tomlinson sees the world as a garden for us all.
