His work has graced the covers of Time, GQ,Vogue, Esquire, Wired, and The New York Times magazine. Portrait photographer Marco Grob, who’s worked with a number of Presidents, has been given rare access to the planet’s most untouchable people—a “front row seat to history,” as he puts it.
For the first time ever, Grob has accumulated his portraiture of the world’s most influential people from the last 10–15 years in a book, appropriately titled Money, People, Politics. And it’s out now by teNeues. Grob has shot everyone from Steve Jobs and Vice President Joe Biden to this year’s presidential hopefuls, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Poignant and dedicated quotes from some of Marco Grob’s liminary subjects as Astronaut Scott Kelly and Vice President Joe Biden are special features of this grand photography tome.
Spanning over a decade of his portrait work, showing some of the most dynamic, influential, and controversial figures in modern politics, popular culture, sports, entertainment, technology, science, space travel, and global culture, Money People Politics is an electrifying retrospective from renowned contemporary photographer, Marco Grob. Whether a candid moment of vulnerability, raw emotion, or the direct unadulterated gaze, Grob’s portraits are uniquely ennobling, but ultimately human. Through his autonomous and intimate photographic process with each special personality that has impacted and shaped recent culture, the photographer has been granted a rare and privileged “front row seat to history.” Wholly passionate and committed to his craft that began as a beloved hobby over 30 years ago, Marco Grob believes that when you “carry a camera, you carry a responsibility.”
