"Sally Mann":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sally_Mann, "Richard Misrach":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Misrach and "Vivian Maier":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vivian_Maier are among Marc’s sources of inspiration, along with cinematographer "Fan Ho":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ho_Fan, painter "Edward Hopper":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Hopper, and sculptor "Andy Goldsworthy":http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andy_Goldsworthy. His photos have been featured in the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, the "Glen Echo Photoworks Gallery":http://www.glenechophotoworks.org/, the Washington Post, the State Department, and many international development publications.

During the day Marc is an engineer in international development; this takes him all over Africa building schools, airports, clinics and water treatment plants. These projects are designed to relieve poverty by removing the constraints that hold back economic growth. He is now five years into this career correction and he hasn’t looked back.
