From all outside appearances, Mark seems to have the glamorous New York City life that many would envy. Handsome and always impeccably dressed, the charismatic former male model works as a fashion photographer, appears in movies and attends the best parties. When he leaves those events, however, he heads to the East Village—not to an overpriced loft, but to a hidden corner of a rooftop to sleep each night. Thomas Wirthensohn exposes the dark underbelly of the American Dream in an often-merciless city in Homme Less.
Born and raised in Austria, Thomas Wirthensohn traveled the world as a successful fashion model but it wasn’t until he stepped behind the camera that he found his true passion. Now based out of New York, Wirthensohn captures the faces and places that inspire him most with a documentarian’s eye. As a photographer, director/cinematographer and video editor, his unique style supports brands to better tell their stories. His clients include Pierre Cardin, InStyle, New York City Ballet, Facebook Inc., and The International Culinary Center. Recently, he founded Schatzi Productions, a one-stop production company for all of his creative ventures. Homme Less is his first feature-length documentary that he wrote, co-produced, directed, filmed, and co-edited.
