Mert Alas y Marcus Piggott se conocieron en Londres hace apenas 11 años y empezaron a trabajar conjuntamente en 1999. Alas es originario de Turquia, mientras que Piggott nació en Gales.
La primera revista que confió en ellos fue Dazed & Confused que no solo compraron su primera editorial, sino que la convirtieron en portada de la revista. Sus retratos destacan por su sofisticación, la imagen de mujeres poderosas que rozan la perfección.
Ellos mismos dicen que pierden infinidad de tiempo con el maquillaje y la peluquería, creen que estos aspectos son mucho más importantes que la técnica fotográfica.

Y para mí es lo que tiene esta modelo, sex appeal, puede que sea por su cara aniñada, por sus grandes ojos, cuerpo perfecto o que se yo, pero tiene un "algo" que transmite en cada sesión y en cada fotografía.

And for me that is what this model has, sex appeal, maybe it's because her childlike face, her big eyes, her perfect body or I don't know but, she has "something" that communicates in each photoshoot and in each photograph.
