I am very excited to have some of my work included in a new exhibition called “Not My Family Values” on Art Photo Index. I have several images in the gallery from my series “Some Days We Caught Rainbows” about my daughter Maisy and my experience becoming a father for the first time. Below is one of the selected images. You can find a previous blog post on the project here and the complete project on my website here.
The show was curated by Rebecca Senf who is the Photography Curator at the Phoenix Art Museum.
The text for the exhibition is very intriguing to me as it deals with societal perceptions of raising children in the modern world. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t question the decisions I make regarding my child and often how people perceive those decisions plays a large role.
I am very honored to be a part of such a great exhibit and such a diverse group of work by some amazing photographers. Please the view the online exhibition at Art Photo Index here.
The book I created from my project on immigration reform called “The Things That Affect Our Lives Every Day” was recently accepted into the INFOCUS Juried Exhibition of Self-Published Photo Books at the Phoenix Art Museum. The exhibition runs from August 23 to September 28th in the Doris and John Norton Gallery for Center for Creative Photography at The Phoenix Art Museum. The exhibition jury was lead by Center for Creative Photography Curator Rebecca Senf and included Darius Himes (Frankel Gallery curator and Co-author of Publish Your Photography Book), Mary Virginia Swanson (Co-author of Publish Your Photography Book), Joshua Chuang (Chief Curator at the Center for Creative Photography) and Larissa Leclair (Founder of the Indie Photobook Library).
In addition to the photo book exhibition I have also recently participated in several exhibitions both locally and nationally. I have some of my landscape work in a group show called ‘The Human-Altered Landscape’ at The Photo Place Gallery in Middlebury, Vermont this month. Also opening in August, I exhibited some of my work from the Freemasonry project at Art Intersection in Gilbert, Arizona. Both of those show opened earlier in the month.

Since he was young, he has been recreating the world around him through photographs and is continually refining his artistic vision by drawing on influences from music, literature and art. Mark's work reflects a graphic, story-telling quality with a cinematic feel, drawing on his design background while studying at the Kansas City Art Institute.
Mark enjoys photographing ordinary people who do interesting things. Although he is primarily a still photographer, he has recently started incorporating multi-media and motion into his work. Recent project themes include examining how one's memory is affected with the passage of time and exploring family histories.
