Mark Isaac is an artist working in photography, video, and installation. His documentary work, accomplished in close collaboration with his wife, Gabriela Bulisova, focuses on diverse social issues, including the impact of mass incarceration, the environmental health of our waterways, and the importance of memory to identity. His fine art work focuses on our deep immersion in electronic media and our capacity for positive change in the contemporary moment.

Isaac was awarded an MFA in Photography and Digital Imaging from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. He also studied extensively at the Corcoran College of Art and Design and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC. Isaac was a semi-finalist for the Sondheim award in 2012, and was named a promising local photographer by FotoDC in 2011. He is a member of the Atlantika Collective, a creative collective based in the mid-Atlantic region in the United States.

By revealing the difficulties we face in an extremely complex social and political environment, while nevertheless reveling in an ongoing sense of possibility, Isaac’s work reflects on some of the key challenges we face at the beginning of the 21st Century.

In 2017-18, Isaac will be working in Ukraine on a Fulbright grant with longtime collaborator Gabriela Bulisova.
