Photographer, experimental filmmaker, and musician Mark Borthwick became well known for his award-winning avant-garde fashion photography in the 1990's when he worked for magazines such as The Face or i-D Magazine, and for inspiring the iconic visual identity for brands such as Margiela and Commes Des Garcon.
More recently he can be found collaborating on films with innovators Mike Mills, Chan Marshal or Chloe Sevigny, several published books, and exhibitions of his photographs that appear alongside his drawings and lyrical poetry, often accompanied with his music and live performance. His perceptive and seemingly effortless images evoke the satisfactions of home, family and a harmony with nature.
In addition to the ongoing collaboration with his wife through Zero Maria Cornejo, his free spirit can be found currently directing advertising for brands Mykita, Missoni, and Hermes to name a few. Editorially his work often appears in Purple, i-D , Modern Matter, Union, POP Magazine, and films premiere frequently on Nowness. Born in London, Mark Borthwick currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
