My project “interacting With The Past” was chosen as a winner in the Photo District News: Faces photo contest for environmental portraiture. Two of the photos are featured on Page 63 of the August issue of PDN and five images are featured on the website in the winners gallery.
I would like to thank all my friends who have participated in the project. Here is the link to a previous blog post about the project: Interacting With My Past. I have already started photographing for the next installment and have plans to return to the midwest this fall to continue work on the project.

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.
