Distinct in both style and technique, San Francisco-based photographer Mark Holthusen is best known for creating images that push the boundaries of traditional photography.

After receiving his BFA in Photography and Sculpture in 1993, Mark began his career in the Czech Republic as an Art Director at DMB&B. He returned to San Francisco to co-found a leading digital photography studio just five years later. Recognized for his creative innovation, Mark spoke on the intersection of art and technology at the prestigious TED conference in 2006.

In fall of 2006, Mark brought his vision to the opening of Roger Waters’ opera, Ca Ira. Waters and Sony BMG Music asked Mark to replace traditional stage design with his images for the opera’s debut in Rome. Over 120 of Mark’s photographs served as the opera’s sole visual narration and were met by international critical acclaim.
