photography + film
Marcel Christ (1969) is a short film director and still life photographer, based in Amsterdam.
Marcel Christ’s approach to still-life photography is truly unique, making his work some of the most recognizable in the industry. Having studied both chemical engineering and photography, Christ blends these two interests to achieve his powerfully dynamic work. And it’s this very
background that makes him an unusually dynamic and experimental photographer and filmmaker who likes to explore the boundaries of the special effects and techniques he's using.
His imagery is the outcome of his interest in the unpredictability and surprise of the ingredients he works with but within a meticulously controlled studio environment. He calls it "controlling coincidence"
Through this, he finds ways to give life to otherwise inanimate objects and immortalizes singular moments in time. There is nothing ‘still’ in his work. Everything moves, jumps and flies.
Because he’s adept at both filmmaking and photography, clients can be assured of conceptual, visual and creative consistency in both media.
Some of the clients include Les Infusions de Prada, Johnnie Walker, Nespresso, Absolute Vodka, Heineken, Hennessy and Coca-Cola.

This project is a study of the behaviour of oil and water. When brought together, the simultaneous forces that attract and repel the pigmented oils help create individual landscapes that are worlds in their right.

Meet Perfection: Absolut Vodka
ABSOLUT Vodka is proud of its one-source heritage. The fact that their Vodka is produced exclusively in Åhus, Sweden for the global market, using just one pure source of spring water and locally farmed winter wheat, is what separates ABSOLUT’s quality. For the Meet Perfection Campaign for Absolute Vodka we shot all these perfect and tasty cocktails.
