As a younger man Mark Anderson earned a living with a camera - a film camera. That meant pizza, politicians, and wedding parties were regular subjects. Then, not quite 20 years ago, everything went digital. So Mark decided to get a "real" job. As retirement looms, Mark is now able to return, perhaps obsessively, to photography. Mark's time is now dedicated to photographic projects that are more emotive than commercial.
Mark was originally schooled in Theater Arts. Stage lighting particularly held his interest. Mark contends it is a very small jump from this discipline to photography. The theater also gave him another perspective. It has been said that "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." Mark insists that "the longer I live, the truer this statement becomes."
Mark has exhibited at The ARTS at Marks Garage (no affiliation) in Honolulu and the Viewpoint Photographic Art Center in Sacramento.
