“Witness a vanishing wilderness in Mark Loren Freedman’s stunning nature images from the remotest regions on Earth”
Mark Loren Freedman was born and raised in Toronto, Canada. An Emergency Physician by day, Mark balances his intense work with a passion for nature and wildlife photography. He has photographed in dozens of countries on all seven continents including some of the most remote regions on Earth. Mark finds inspiration in the raw beauty and innocence of his subjects and the harshness in which they survive. His current projects include photography in the Canadian Arctic, Greenland, Spitsbergen, Antarctica, South Georgia, the Amazon and Africa.
Mark’s photographic style can best be described as environmental portraiture. He strives to capture rare and spectacular creatures surrounded by stunning and dramatic landscapes. His provocative images highlight the intimate interplay between creature and habitat, a relationship so precarious that even subtle disturbances can significantly and irreparably upset the equilibrium. Ultimately his aim is to promote environmental awareness by sharing scenes we risk losing forever.
