From the reception press release:
On Thursday, Nov. 29th from 6-8pm, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty office on 14th St NW will host an opening reception featuring local DC photographer, Mark Parascandola, whose work will be on display there until Jan. 11.
Mark Parascandola, a PhD epidemiologist by training, uses photography to explore patterns of movement in human populations, focusing on architecture as evidence of often-invisible social, environmental, and economic processes. With family roots in the desert landscape of Almeria, Spain, he is currently documenting the remains of old movie sets constructed in the region during the 1960s and 1970s.
Parascandola’s work has been featured at various galleries in DC and at Galería Acanto in Almeria, Spain and appears in the DC Art Bank and numerous individual collections. He is an active member of the Mid City Artists and the Washington Project for the Arts. He was also recently selected as a finalist for the 2011 Sondheim Prize, and four of his images were chosen by Corcoran Gallery of Art curator Amanda Maddox for inclusion in her section of the FotoDC Flash exhibit. Mark creates his own limited-edition digital prints using pigment inks on watercolor paper. TTR Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to showcase his work at an opening reception on Thursday, November 29th from 6-8pm. His work will be on display until January 11th.
