Mark Berndt observes, arranges and preserves random occurrences as pictured poems. Subject matter is largely irrelevant. When and where they’ll appear is unpredictable. He balances subject, line and color in a deceptively simple frame that strains out the clutter and leads us to share that thing he saw – that thing we might have missed.
Mark Berndt’s career as a professional in commercial film and photography required the assembly and direction of concept, cast and crew. But his personal expression revels in the simple arrangement of things as they appear in the world. Juxtaposition, humor, phenomena and romance catch his eye and feed his soul. Pleasure in capturing the moment meets process in polishing the image, to clarify his vision, to punctuate the story, to transfer the experience of the moment observed.
