Brazilian-born Marcelo Krasilcic moved to New York in 1990 and quickly became known for his photographs of liberated youth, artists, designers and musicians.
His contributions to early issues of Visionaire, Purple, Dazed & Confused, Self Service, AnOther Magazine, 10, Fantastic Man, Pin-Up, Butt, Candy, and Office have helped set the visual identity of trailblazing publications.
Marcelo's images have appeared in magazines such as Esquire, T Magazine, GQ, V Magazine, Vogue Hommes International, InStyle, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar, and in campaigns for Nike, Pandora, Caleres, Moët Chandon, Kenneth Cole, Diane Von Furstenberg, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harvey Nichols, and Bergdorf Goodman among many others.
His two-volume book, 1990s, chronicles the photographer’s personal and influential aesthetic. This work has been called “indolent yet oddly innocent” by the New York Times, “filled with a bold vision of the world where everything is playful, colorful and dripping with a happy dynamic sexuality” by Apartamento, and “nonchalant but luxuriously comforting” by Artforum.
Marcelo has exhibited at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Museu de Arte Moderna in São Paulo, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, MASP in São Paulo, and MoMA PS1 in New York.
Today he continues to live and work in New York's Lower East Side.
