Making Room For Another
I recently updated my personal project ‘Making Room for Another’. Here is a sample of new photos from the series. If you would like to see the complete edit of the project please view it in the ‘Projects’ section of my website: Making Room for Another.
In March 2011, I posted a few photos that were the beginning of a personal project called “It’s 2:30 on A Monday”. It was about becoming a father for the first time with the addition of my daughter to our family. I have since renamed the project “Making Room for Another” this is an update to that project with photos taken over the last 12 months.
See previous posts on the project from last year: Project Preview March 2011, Project Debut April 2011. If you would like to see a more complete edit of the project please view it in the ‘Projects’ section of my website: Making Room for Another.
It’s 2:30pm on a Monday. I am not at work… Mondays are my day at home. My wife goes to work on Mondays, we alternate days that we stay home to be parents. it’s a strange way to start the week. But I set my own hours being self-employed or my clients set my hours, either way things are always in flux.
My wife and I became parents in February 2009 when our daughter Maisy was born. Incorporating her life into our life has been a huge challenge for us both. In many ways she has forced both my wife and i to change and grow in new and unexpected ways.
The impact that my daughter has had on my life has been immeasurable. She has a tazmanian devil-like energy that I can only try to keep up with and clean up after. It takes a lot of energy to keep it all together and maintain both our careers. These photos are about Maisy’s exploration of her new world, the toys I pick up after she goes to bed and about my time with Maisy…
I had previewed this project on the blog a few weeks ago here and since this is an ongoing project it will change before it takes a final form on the website.
Here is a sneak peak at a new project that I have been working on for about nine months…
The project is still in progress and the work hasn’t been published on my website yet in fact the title will probably change too. I will explain the concept for the project on future news posts so keep an eye out for updates.

on a daily basis fuels his curiosity about the human experience and he documents things in sketchbooks as a way of remembering his life.
Since he was young, he has been recreating the world around him through photographs and is continually refining his artistic vision by drawing on influences from music, literature and art. Mark's work reflects a graphic, story-telling quality with a cinematic feel, drawing on his design background while studying at the Kansas City Art Institute.
Mark enjoys photographing ordinary people who do interesting things. Although he is primarily a still photographer, he has recently started incorporating multi-media and motion into his work. Recent project themes include examining how one's memory is affected with the passage of time and exploring family histories.
