Earl Nagase. Through this work he was chosen by producer Courtney Ross to be the chief photographer for the Quincy Jones "Listen Up" project. A cadre of celebrated musicians, Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, and Loinel Hampton, posed for Mark for the project's book, concert, album and promational works.
Throughout Mark's 19 years in New York, he has continually produced a personal portrait series of people with whom he has worked, who have influenced or inspired him, or as he says, "People I grew up with in America." Working in a mutually collaborative venue, Mark develops a concept and cocceptualizies a stage with artist, musicians, directors, designers. "My lifework," as Mark also refers to the series, is scheduled for exhibition in London in 1997.
Recently Mark has branched out to do more fashion photography, capturing New York lifestyle via a new-concept Toyota catalog. His unique style is characterized by a special distortion lens he developed himself.
