Steven Marks is a photographer who works in conceptual and documentarian modes. His current project, Common Ground, explores how the signs and symbols of our world, the shape of light itself, can be combined to form abstract and representational visual narratives. North+Charles, shown in May 2016, featured environmental portraits made around North Ave and Charles St, the geographic and sociopolitical hub of Baltimore.
Marks received an MFA in photography from the University of Illinois – Chicago. His work has been featured in exhibits at galleries and museums in the US and around the world.
