Mark Peterson

This work is called Politics in Black and White.  The images are mostly from the last year during political events.   I am looking at the Political Theatre that has overtaken our democracy and how it plays out.  I am using iPhone apps to make the images more cartoonish or theatrical to accurately reflect the events.
