Mark Waite views the world around him through eyes that see beyond the surface. Deeper. Penetrating. To the heart and soul of the cities and the people that are the subjects of his work. His photographs translate that vision into the stunning images he shares with us. A newcomer to the community of artists that have the rare ability to see the ‘unseen’, Waite has begun a journey of exploration that continues to evolve and provide a sensibility that evokes the true nature of the urban experience. From foreboding skylines to crumbling industrial vistas to the soft glow of the setting sun on a child’s face, Waite’s work provides us with a window to see and feel what he ‘sees’.
Born in Chicago, Waite has lived and worked in New York City, traveled extensively, and has returned to the city of his birth which he documents daily with his camera.
