about

Marc Ohrem-Leclef was born in Dusseldorf, Germany.
After studying Communication Design at the Darmstadt University of Applied Sciences in Germany he relocated to New York City in 1998.

Ohrem-Leclef renewed his focus on personal long term projects after 2012.
His visual arts practice centers on immersive portraits of communities—whether they are formed by bloodlines, social circumstance, or cultural movements.

Ohrem-Leclef's work has been exhibited in Brazil, Germany, India, the UK and US, and is held in the collections of Museo de Arte do Rio (MAR), Rio de Janeiro, and David Dechman, NYC.

It has been published and reviewed in publications such as Artnews, Artforum, BBC, Hyperallergic, Der Spiegel, Die Zeit, HuffingtonPost, Slate, The New Yorker.

OLYMPIC FAVELA, a book of photographs by Marc Ohrem-Leclef with a text by Luis Perez-Oramas (MoMA), was named "best of 2014" by AmericanPhoto Magazine.

Marc's work has been exhibited in Germany and the U.S., and has been published in numerous international publications, most recently the publication of OLYMPIC FAVELA (Damiani/Artbook, 2014), a book with photographs from the ongoing project.

In 2013 Marc was invited to speak as a Guest Lecturer in the Advanced Photography Seminar at Columbia University, New York.
