The following is a biography for the photographer:
Since an early age, Mark Windham has been fascinated with the visual arts. His first award was earned at age six; first place in Drawing at the South Carolina State Fair. As he grew his fascination became a vocation. He earned both a BA and a MA in art studio from the University of South Carolina.
In the late 70’s and early 80’s he worked as an artist/photographer for the Riverbanks Zoo and Gardens where his works were frequently published in magazines such as Animal Kingdom and The Riverbanks Zoo Magazine (now called Riverbanks). He has taught photography, art history, art appreciation and many different art media at places as diverse as The University of South Carolina, The Richland County Library, local businesses and schools in neighboring districts. His works are in private collections throughout the United States, Canada and Europe. His photography was published in the February 2007 issue of B & W magazine and featured in a four-page spread in the July/August 2007 edition of Focus magazine. Both periodicals are international, aimed at the collector of fine art photography.
Windham ’s work has been shown at Weekend Gallery, East Side Bowery, The Picture Corner, Sloan Gallery, Francis Marion College, Benedict College, McKissick Museum and The Columbia Museum of Art. He is presently being represented by Elite Framing and Gallery in Lexington, South Carolina.
