LIGHT photography by Marc Wallace
Marc’s ethereal landscapes and imagery exemplify his prowess for playing with light. His sensitivity behind the lens captures moments that are purely emotive, as he strives in his mission, “to accentuate light, the intrinsic qualities and character of God.” Marc further states, “Our world is an incredible place that we get to live in. Everywhere we look, we can find astounding beauty. It is my hope to help people see the incredible beauty of God’s creation…”
Marc first learned photography from his father, and purchased his own first camera while in high school. Later serving in the Marines he was stationed at the Headquarters Battalion for the 3rd Marine Division in Okinawa, Camp Courtney, complete with a photo lab and a knowledgeable photo tech. Marcus used the opportunity to really explore this media thoroughly. He states, “Having full use of this valuable resource changed my perspective about photography and I fell in love with this very challenging medium, Black & White Photography… my preferred medium for taking Pictures…My wife [Debbie] and my friends who know me accuse me of seeing in Black and White.”

Fragility and Impermanence
Matter breaking down. Energy slowly disbursing. Initiating a recovery of energy and materials back into a life cycle we all share to be transformed and repurposed again and again.
