Marco Aurelio specializes in portrait and fine art photography.
An adopted New Yorker since my teens, I was born and raised in a family of generational farmers in Colombia, South-America. Those early years in the country-side inspired a deep bond with nature, while my years in New York City fostered an ongoing inquiry into the relationships between culture, nature, and urban habitats. I have backgrounds in textile design and merchandising; corporate media; and healthcare.
