There may be more famous buildings in San Francisco but in my mind none more important than the Phelan Building. The original Phelan Building was destroyed in the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and fire. The new reinforced building was the first major office building to be rebuilt and opened, just two years later. It was the building that proclaimed to the world, "San Francisco is coming back!" Original photo shot in 1906; mine in 2017.

His work reflects his lifelong passion for photography, history, and architecture. He combines vintage and contemporary photographs of major cities in the United States. Mark begins his work by researching rare, historical photographs. Then, he travels to the location to shoot his version of the image taken from the exact same vantage point. Finally, he returns to his studio where he combines the two images on his computer, showing the past and present together. The inherent nostalgia of his work strives to elicit a powerful and personal response in every viewer.
