"The tamer of light"
Originally from Los Angeles, Marc Sebastian grew up with a strong idea of freedom. This spirit of liberty runs through his veins since then and his beautiful images bear this DNA and quest for a genuine independence of mind. What struck me first when I looked up his work for the very first time was the skill and ease he has shown to secure his prey, like a wild bird digging its claws into its victim.
Marc Sebastian is born for beauty, he is a kind of hunter, furtive and secret, aiming to tame the untamed frontier enriching his images with a magical spell of light.
This is what I call talent, a "tamer of light."
