"I like and always admired the human body and nature, I use light as a form of communication."
From Brazil, Marcus Luconi is an experimental photographer specialized in the human figure that has been developing a career over the past 23 years in fashion, beauty, fine art and advertising. His first big project was the establishment of Kromak Produções Fotográficas (Kromak Photographic Productions)- a company specialized in catalogue production that has been on the market for 20 years and has one of the largest photography studios of South and Central America.
In fashion, Luconi has done advertisement and editorial work for magazines like Elle and Interview. His best pieces though are the ones that emphasize nude photography. His personal way to shoot it attracted the Brazilian Playboy's publisher, for whom he has developed many essays and covers.

This personal project seeks publishing, through art and photography, the unknown aspects of Brazilian geography. Showing its beauty, enhancing its cultural and environmental value.
