A conversation with Mark King

6.30PM / Friday / June 15th.

Mark King is a Barbados-based photographer. He has been in residence, at the Yard, developing a new project. In 2011, he participated in a screen printing artist in residency at the Frans Masereel Centrum in Kasterlee, Belgium. In the same year he was selected by Lucie Foundation for their E-pprentice program and paired with acclaimed photographer Roger Erickson for a six month apprenticeship. Mark has called Barbados, The Bahamas, Brussels, San Francisco, and Washington D.C. home. His international experience directly informs his projects. As a constant outsider, Mark's work examines the people he encounters during his travels as well as his relationship with an ever-changing environment.
