Caleb Cain Marcus is a New York City based photographer, born in the Rocky Mountains. Cain Marcus has dedicated himself to the poetic search for the balance between city, nature, man and the invisible.

In an effort to re-create a feeling of solitude that occurs in nature he photographed New York City at night, when the vibrations of the space could be observed without the pollution of people. The series culminated in his first book, The Silent Aftermath of Space (2010), which included a foreword by Robert Frank. Cain Marcus’ response to the night work, A Portrait of Ice (2012), was a two-yearjourney onto the glaciers of Patagonia, Iceland, Norway, New Zealand and Alaska. Cain Marcus attempts to create a bond between the viewer and the glaciers that is not based on analytic data, but one that is felt through the use of instinctual color.

His photographs are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, and the High Museum of Art, among others. He holds an MFA from Columbia University.
