The most interesting thing about photographer Mark Glassner may well be – at least that’s what the fashion editor at the Austrian daily newspaper Der Standard stated in a portrait published after Mark had won an important editorial award – the many professional facets he has accumulated over the years. His work spans fashion photography, video art and, surprisingly, even a period of medical studies. Possibly because of this wide field of interests, a recurring motif in his fashion photographs is an upsetting of the laws of gravity as well as the subtle incorporation of striking architectural structures. So with Mark’s work, you don’t always seem to be able to tell at once whether models are lying down, or leaning against something, or standing upright. A brilliant example of his work: the lookbook he photographed for the spring 2010 collection of menswear designer Ute Ploier.
