Moving Elephant by Mark

Inquire

Moving Elephant by Mark is a Zurich based photographer. For him, the art of photography is synonymous with life, embodying a never-ending journey which is manifested in his creativity and artistic vision. Capturing his scenes with only naturally available light as well as directly shot monochrome, his images hold a power in their underlying preservation of photography in its most natural and raw form. Mark’s work is comprised of two parallel lines of work. The first of these lines explores symmetry and perspective in mostly urban architecture. These works capture the beauty of the order present in oft overlooked architecture, which is then further emphasized by the monochromatism of the images, which renders all the lines of the symmetry all that much more visible. The second line in Mark’s work deals with the art of storytelling through images as it relates to the female body. In these works, Mark deftly wields extremely dramatic lights and shadows to create gorgeously emotive scenes that can easily stir up memories or connections within a viewer. Further, there is compositional overlap between these lines, both where elements of symmetry and repetition come into the figurative works, as well as where the symmetrical architecture begins to evoke figurative forms in its contours.
