The duo photographic team is considered to be one of the most innovative in fashion photography today. They met in London in 1990 and their love for art and photography quickly evolved into a working partnership. Their first photo shoot submitted to Dazed & Confused made the cover. Since then, their distinctive and powerful images have been featured globally in magazines including: Interview, Love, Vanity Fair, Vogue and W among many other international titles. Their commercial clients include Calvin Klein, Christian Dior, Giorgio Armani, Givenchy, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Versace and Yves Saint Laurent.

Mert & Marcus stated, ”Phillips’ commitment to presenting and promoting fashion photography as contemporary art made them the perfect platform for our first retrospective. We are thrilled to celebrate 20 years of working together with this exhibition.”
