Marco Buddingh (1968, Alphen aan de Rijn) lives in Amsterdam.                    

Marco is specialised in documentary photography and more illustrative work. During his work as a grafic designer, he decided to explore his great passion, photography.

He studied photography for 4 years at the Photo-Academy Amsterdam. He is inspired by the work of Wolfgang Tillmans, Ed van der Elsken and Martijn van der Griendt. Creative people and artists are his most important object.
At the academy he followed for example the collective of artists and free spirits of "4dw" at Westerdoksdijk and in former discotheque Havana in Amsterdam. At this moment he is following a few street-artists in Amsterdam.

Marco thinks it is important to show more of a person than only "a smiling face" and he shows that in serial and colourfull work.
