biography

Mark Abrahams was born in 1958 in Santa Ana,
California. The gift of a Nikon FM from his mother
ignited his passion for photography. Working as a
truck driver by day, Abrahams transformed his tiny
bathroom into a functioning darkroom to develop film,
retouch negatives and manipulate surfaces at night.
Against all odds, in the early 1990s Abrahams found
himself shooting iconic musicians, supermodels and
landing editorial shoots with international editions of
Vogue, GQ and many other world renowned fashion,
music and art publications.
One of the foremost fashion and magazine cover
photographers of the past two decades, American
photographer Mark Abrahams has straddled the gap
between fashion and celebrity portraiture with
guileless simplicity and exacting care. Abrahams
portrays his subjects with an introspective depth and
candor. His subjects run the gamut of the A-list:
Julianne Moore, George Clooney, James Franco, Dakota
Fanning, Sean Diddy Combs, Ashley Olsen, Dennis
Hopper, Lindsay Lohan, Larry Clark, Michelle Obama,
Ed Ruscha, Philip Roth, Roberto Bolle, Evander
Holyfield, Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Tom Hanks,
Rachel Weisz and countless others.
Marks Abrahams first self titled book was published in
2011 by Damiani. The volume which features a text by
James Frey, provides a dazzling parade of the glitterati
under Abrahams' lens, devoid of affectation or artifice.
