Award-winning filmmaker and photographer Marco Bollinger has photographed Beyoncé and Obama, and danced for 107 hours in a full-body scarlet macaw costume to raise awareness about rainforest conservation. From living in New York, L.A. and Tokyo shooting youth subculture, to years spent documenting Lebanon’s refugee camps, he holds to his belief of living the story in order to explore the grey area that makes up human lives. He has won several awards including PDN’s Best Portrait of an Artist & an Indie Fest Humanitarian Award.

Photography

Sometimes more pop, sometimes more advocacy, but always searching for what’s below the surface.
