FLEET WEEK DISPATCH
Mark Abramson (@markabramsonphoto) is a Russian-American freelance photojournalist and documentary artist based in New York City, working across the U.S and abroad.
His work focuses on the intersection of various facets of modern day social issues such as immigration, education, politics, and community. Much of the inspiration for his documentary work, and the more recent conceptual work Two Face, comes from his own family’s history of migration from the former Soviet Union through Europe and to the United States. His interest in experiential storytelling led him to study print journalism at George Washington University, and later to receive further training as a photographer and video journalist at The Washington Post and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
