Read some comments and statements from the past decade about his work here:
"If you didn’t know about Marc van Dalen before now, his “quiet, discreet” life in Berlin has just hit the big screen. I exaggerate about leading a low key life. This photographer of glamorous, frankly gorgeous women has a stunning portfolio and is hardly an amateur.
Marc van Dalen’s very sexy photos are now in high-voltage circulation and deservedly so.
Pegging a style between Terry Richardson’s grimy, Polaroid ‘up against the basement wall’ look and a super touched-up, sleek glamour that dominates fashion photography, Marc van Halen proves he can photography women “au naturel” with a lens that elevates feminine principles.
Some of the women do want to look like the consummate bad girl, and van Dalen let’s them. His women romp around in every possible state of mood and undress.
What’s key in Marc van Dalen’s appeal is that he has no need to control the scene — a la Karl Lagerfeld, or to pornify it Terry Richardson style. Like Ellen von Unswerth, Marc van Dalen encourages his muses to express themselves fully.
My young women friends are inspiring, blogging bare women one moment, followed by a stray cat or two birds on a tree limb the next. We have no evidence that these young people actually have fewer hangups about sensuality but behaviorally, their holistic approach to sensuality is superb.
If only we could help young women not be slut girls, but the gorgeous Smart Sensuality females with brains, beauty, sensuality and heart that they are for real, I would be a happy woman.
Marc van Dalen grasps this essential promise of possibility in today’s young females around the world.
As a woman, I can tell when the man behind the lens truly likes women. Marc van Dalen gets a high-five from me on his very sexy portfolio. Anne"

Little did he know, he’s becoming a rockstar
