Marcus Johnson (alias only4thebrave) is an English creative photographer and researcher whose brilliant work focuses on diversity and society’s perpetual pursuit to standardize the world as we perceive it. Moreover, his take on photography emphasizes the idea of becoming an exponent of the ordinary just for the sake of general validation.
His latest series – Covered in Plastic – is probably a good proof. Having its roots in the fashion area, the series is a sample of models “doing anything for beauty”. “My work is based on fashion and the need to fit in”, Marcus says.
