A New York Times photography critic called Marco "a minimalist, whose images are sensual, whimsical, often surreal, always strong and deceptively simple".

His work is represented in The Museum of Modern Art, The Museum of the Moving Image and The George Eastman Museum of Photography.

"I've had the pleasure of working with Phil Marco on a number of my films. Phil is a man of extraordinary talents. It seems his passion is to take an everyday object or event and show it in an entirely new and exciting way."

Martin Scorsese
