Elvis from Hell

A native of Liverpool who works by day in bank strategy and innovation and who currently resides in Lytham St Annes, Mark was an avid and habitual ‘snapper' for many years on his travels.
It was when he randomly came upon a book about Leon Levinstein that he knew that street photography was for him. Perhaps the biggest highlight so far since then was spending five days last year with Bruce Gilden in his London Masterclass. Other heroes are Sergio Larrain, Garry Winogrand, Louis Stettner and Daido Moriyama.
