About Good Morning America (Volume Three)
Good Morning, America (Volume III) is the third in an ongoing series of five books by photographer Mark Power exploring the cultural and physical landscape of the US. When Power began this project in 2012 he could not have predicted the seismic changes wrought by both politics and pandemic on America in this period. This new book, the halfway point for the series, continues the visual chronicle – but under very different circumstances than when he began.
Mark Power was born in 1959 in Harpenden, UK. He now lives in Brighton, UK.
‘As a child, he discovered his father’s home-made enlarger in the family attic. A contraption consisting of an upturned flowerpot, a light bulb and a simple camera lens. His interest in photography probably began at this moment, although he later went to art college to study life-drawing and painting instead.
After graduating, he travelled for two years around South-East Asia and Australia. To support himself Power tried a number of jobs (he was an English teacher, a television actor and a fish farm attendant, he painted cinema murals, produced large numbers of identical paintings for others to sell as their own, and ended up running the camera department of a large chemist). While travelling, Power began to realise he enjoyed using a camera more than a pencil. He decided to ‘become a photographer’ on his return to England two years later.’
