Description of Work

"Photography is a universal language and it is my hope that my images will move viewers to respond not only with empathy, but also with action. It is my intention to photograph people with compassion and dignity in the hope of communicating our interrelatedness." — Mark Tuschman
Mark Tuschman has worked as an international freelance photographer for more than 34 years. He dedicates himself to raising awareness on international issues regarding women and children, and is committed to issues of global health. Tuschman received photographer of the year from the Global Health Council in 2009-10.
In 2019, Tuschman launched a project exploring themes of courage and resilience in the faces of immigrants to the United States. As part of this project, Mark has photographed over 100 immigrants and families to help create bridges of understanding in American society. Through video and photography, Mark hopes to highlight the contributions that immigrants make on American society and how each of their stories help enrich the larger American story. His work focuses on communities being discriminated against by our current administration and includes people of all skills, from those doing manual labor to those highly skilled in medicine, law, and hi-tech.
