Street photographers on Tumblr will no doubt recognize the name Markos Görges. In real life he’s Mark George, a graphic designer specializing in photo magazines, from London.
When he’s not working, Mark loves to explore the streets of London and other cities with his Olympus cameras in search of subjects for his often humorous photos. As a designer he has an instinct for composition and a clear understanding of how to utilize the elements of design. Put these together with his interest in the quirky side of life he creates some very interesting images. His style is both unique and entertaining.
Because he’s an experienced designer, I asked him to show us some of his favorite photos and explain how he applied his design skills to create them. His explanations were a learning experience for me and I hope they are for you as well.
