The Candid Frame #84 - Stephen Marc
Stephen Marc, Olympus Visionary photographer and art professor at Arizona State University’s Herberger College of Fine Arts, is recognized for his unique and powerful photographic montages that explore the African Diaspora. His images combine family snapshots, antique photographs and images from his own extensive body of photographic work. The dual themes of all his work are an attempt to tell both his personal story and the story of a culture.
Marc’s current project, Passage on the Underground Railroad, explores North America’s Underground Railroad, which moved escaped slaves to freedom. For over four years, he took more than 30,000 photographs of people and places in 21 states and Canada. The project culminated in a book and exhibition of Marc’s Underground Railroad artwork. You can discover more about him and his work by visiting this website.
Stephen Marc recommends the work of Jerry N. Uelsmann.
