Mark Alan Male Fine Art Photography
Mark Alan is an American photographer now residing in southern Spain. Having studied photography in Pasadena, California, Mark immediately found his voice with a love for photographing people. Initially his focus was editorial, portrait, street and fashion photography, but it didn’t take long for him to discover his true passion, capturing the beauty of male form.
Mark has communicated his creativity through many mediums including music, video, painting and writing, but has always come back to his camera as a main way of expressing himself. Having officially ‘retired’, now with the ability to travel and explore the world, he captures the places and men he encounters along the way with his lens. He continues to bring an editorial style to his nude work, but keeping a more relaxed and natural way of presenting his subjects.
Mark’s works have been published in magazines including Blue and Photo & Video Numérique, displayed in group shows in New York, Los Angeles and most recently in Berlin, and featured in numerous online digital publications.
His black and whites featured here represent the artist’s beginnings taken in the late 90s and early 00s as he first began his explorations of the male body. The color images represent his recent explorations taken both in Los Angeles and Spain, including a new series of male nudes and plants. With this ongoing series he’s trying to remove the viewers primary focus from the male form and create new compositions with a secondary natural elements.
