His first inspirations were punk music, French New Waveand Italian cinema, particularly the films of Jean-Luc Godard, Francois Truffaut,Federico Fellini, and Michelangelo Antonioni; and the Weimar painters George Grosz,Gustav Wunderwald, and Otto Dix. Originally a landscape and street photographer,Marie-Saint turned to fashion and portraiture shortly after finishing his education,combining the elements of fashion, street, and landscape photography into a cinematic narrative that is present in all of his work today. After an experimental phase, he moved to Paris to develop his look and portfolio before eventually moving to New York City, where he now lives and works.
