Biography

Marcel Leliënhof, born 1966 in Rotterdam, has a master degree in photography and advertising from The London College of Print. Marcel started as a street photographer in London, and his documentation of the city´s subcultures in the 80´s and 90´s are widely known for it´s charm and over-all unexpectancy. Marcel has extensive experience in a wide range of genres, and is described by his collegues as ”the photo chamelion par exellance”.

He always manages to pinpoint and execute on his clients references – resulting in a rich diversity of expressions – for agencies such as Dinamo, DDB, McCann and Kitchen. Marcel´s documentary work are published in numerous magazines and books. His latest project, titled ”Helvetes Engler”, is in fact the first documentation from inside the controversial chapters of Hells Angels Norway.
