  2. marc, your pics are not only engaging because they shift us horribly out of our comfort zones, but also thought-provoking and technically inspiring.

  3. Thanks for the comments guys! Marc’s work is most certainly inspiring and thought provoking. We hear that he’s working on a new website which should be launching soon. Keep tabs by checking up here often.

  4. I see your work as a stark, inspirational, and flairful reminder of the realities and struggles of normal life against the current virtual backdrop of global financial crisis. Keep shooting Marc, rooting us in the now, as we as a unique species do what we are destined to do – strive into a future.

  6. If you’re one of the million people who’ve purchased an iPhone since the end of June, you most likely signed up along with Apple’s exclusive carrier in the Ough.S., AT&T, when you activated your phone. That means your iPhone identifies by itself to AT&T’s system using an AT&T SIM card, a smart card that’s situated in a small tray between your apple iphone’s sleep/wake button and it is recessed headphone jack.
