Marco Kesseler is a carbon negative photographer based in the UK, with a keen focus on portraits, food and stories that explore our connection to the environment and shape the land around us.
Marco gained a 1st in Press & Editorial Photography from Falmouth University. Publications include The FT Weekend, TIME, National Geographic and The Guardian with past works exhibited at Somerset House, The National Portrait Gallery, Paris Photo and Selfridges & Co.
