About the Book
SHOW & TELL documents Mark Velasquez's beginnings as a model photographer in his small, conservative hometown on the central coast of California. This book covers more than four years, detailing work with his first amateur volunteers and the bonds he formed with them in order to create his unique photographic concepts. Part biography, part bar-room storytelling, these pages leave you eager to see what his future holds.
Mark Velasquez received his BFA from Cornish College in Seattle in 2000. Since then he has been through Costa Rica, Panama, Mexico, and more than enough of the continental United States spreading his unique sense of humor and creative energy where needed. Today he can be found anywhere on the West Coast, camera in hand, mind reeling.
