Artisan Craftsman Books has just completed an awesome fine art book for NY based celebrity and sports photographer Mark Mann! We are truly excited about this special project, which features 46 prominent portraits by Mark, including Bill Murray, Bradley Cooper, Robin Williams, Stephen Colbert, Pharrell Williams, Woody Allen, Robert Redford, Robert Duvall, President Barack Obama and President Bill Clinton among so many others.
Each portrait occupies either a full page or double page panoramic. Detailed in a simple gunmetal grey with 4″ logo, the 11×14 book will be on exhibit during PhotoPlus East NY, October 30 – Nov 1, 2014 at the Hahnemühle Booth #655. Mark will also make a personal appearance at the booth to sign prints on Friday October 31, 11am – noon.
Mark Mann was born in Glasgow, where he lived until he went to study in the prestigious photographic program at Manchester Polytechnic. Before long, the recent graduate was assisting innovative fashion photographers Nick Knight and Miles Aldridge, learning the ropes and building his own body of work. Three years later, Mark started shooting on his own, relocating to New York City.
Mark’s editorial work has appeared in Esquire, Men’s Health, Vibe, Spin, Fortune, Billboard, Parade and Complex, among others. He has shot countless celebrities, including Robert Redford, Michael Douglas, Iggy Pop, Jack Black, the Black Eyed Peas, Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Rihanna, Queen Latifah, Simon Baker, Stevie Wonder, Bradley Cooper, Willie Nelson, Sean Connery, John Hamm and Jennifer Hudson. Mark’s advertising clients include Reebok, Adidas, Hennessy, Bombay Sapphire, Pepsi, Gillette, Vitamin Water, NHL, Zumba, Ford, Chrysler and Svedka.
Mark has just completed a yearlong project for Esquire Magazine, “The Life of Man”. He shot 80 American men ages 1 through 80, to celebrate 80 years of Esquire Magazine. This project took Mark to the White House where he was honored to shoot the sitting president, as well as former President Clinton. He also shot numerous other notable people and celebrities all across the country. The work was on show in the Hearst Gallery in NYC and is heading to London later in the year.
