My work in photography focuses primarily on capturing unexpected, compelling images in the natural world. I aspire toward intimate, often abstract, candidly spontaneous compositions that distill the power of its visual richness to engage and nurture the primal sensibilities of my viewers. Nature is dramatic in far more ways than the obvious and banal; it is the territories beyond those parameters where my explorations are directed.
Retired from a career as an advertising agency executive and freelance writer, Mark Hopkins has been exploring photography’s artistic potential since acquiring his first digital camera in 2004 at age 72. His attention focuses mainly on the natural world but not to the exclusion of whatever else may look interesting. His work has been exhibited in many New England (and beyond) galleries, museums, and juried competitions. Mark and his wife Margie Yamamoto reside in Lincoln, Massachusetts, when they are not traveling.
