A new source of inspiration
We all have a specific type or style of photography that we favor over another. Whether it is Street Photography, Landscape, Glamour, Nature or some other type of photography, we most likely became interested in photography because of that one photograph we saw that captured our attention long ago and sparked our interest in photography. For me that specific style is a mixture of Street and Documentary styled photography which I loved looking at in LIFE and National Geographic magazines as I was growing up. And to this date, I still recall those great images and how I still dream of being able to capture similarly styled images myself. By the way, I am still dreaming. Those photographers were talented.
Enter into the 21st century. Now I am a grown man, very much still in love with my childhood hobby of photography but with an unlimited source of media to browse thanks to the internet. No longer am I restricted to the magazines at home or at the 5 and Dime general stores. The world of photography has opened up like never before and new photographers inspire me to continue my hobby and keep dreaming.
Thanks to a home brewed website I created which attracted many photographers from around the world to post their photos; I came across the phenomenal work from Steve Mark. The first time I saw a photograph taken by Steve, I knew I had found a photographer which reminded me of what attracted me to photography in the first place.
Steve Mark is a Boston native who has been involved with photography for over 40 years. He has a unique style of street photography that he could probably trademark. His ability to capture a person or a scene in a photographic frame that keeps you captivated is simply amazing. You don’t just turn a page and move on. You look at the photo, you’re intrigued by the scene or circumstance, and you move on to another photo only to come back to the previous one because you want to see more of it. Then there is the life moment that makes you smile like a kiss from a beautiful woman or loyal dog staring you in the face. Below are just a few images from Steve for you to enjoy.
