About The Artist
Mark Tuschman has worked as an international freelance photographer for more than 34 years. As a photographer committed to issues of global health and development, he was privileged to receive the Photographer of the Year award from the Global Health Council in 2009-2010.
His work includes Faces of Courage: Intimate Portraits of Women on the Edge, published in 2015 and documented the lack of autonomy that women and girls face in the developing world and all the efforts designed to empower them. Faces of Courage was recognized as one of the Best Photographic Books of the Year by American Photographer.
In 2018, Mark started another extended project documenting the contributions immigrants make to America. Together We Rise: Immigrants in America will be published in 2024. Over the years, Mark has become more motivated to use his photography to communicate in a more socially conscious way, a way that exposes people to both the degree of human suffering that exists in today’s world and the courage and fortitude that people manifest to overcome it.

About the Artist
Robel Fessehatzion (b. 1985, Arlington, Va) is a self-taught African American photographer and a member of the African diaspora (Ethiopia) based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Influenced by his upbringing near the foothills of the northern Sierra, his work focuses on the natural environment, identity, marginalization and portraiture. His creative research seeks to transform the landscape into a place of belonging, by highlighting the harmony between existing elements while thoughtfully incorporating natural light and color within the frame.

Virtual Artist Talk with Raymond Thompson Jr
TUESDAY, FEB. 27 at NOON–1 p.m. • Register for Zoom Access
Please join artist, educator, and visual journalist Raymond Thompson Jr for a talk about "It's hard to stop rebels that time travel" (2021 to present), his photography project that utilizes archival fragments, historic ephemera, and his own images to focus on individual stories of slaves, maroons, and runaways whose existence is only now revealed through traces in the collective archive.
This project works to expand narratives about the Black experience and our connection to the “American” landscape. This work has been guided by local historic archives of runaway slave ads, lynching news articles, Black folklore and other location specific historical events.
