Mark says: "I'm interested in the guy that doesn't have all the breaks in life and people who live on the edge. . . . I photograph them because they have a certain passion and humanity that really interests me. I would like my pictures to be a voice for them. Photography is about seeing the world in your own peculiar and personal way."
