The Exhibit: "Luminaries" by Mark Mann

"The hardest part about photographing 'celebrities' is usually their natural defenses. If you can break that down for a moment, you can usually capture something special. I hope that in these curated photos the viewer gets to see some of the personality of these wonderful subjects."   - Mark Mann

Mark Mann is a portrait photographer with a focus on notable personalities. Mark's camera of choice is the Leica S system. Visit Container #43 at Photoville to explore "Luminaries".
