Mark Abramson (b. 1988) is a Russian-American freelance photographer and filmmaker based in New York City.
I am drawn to telling stories that allow me to pass through a window and enter into subjects’ lives and document their existence and experiences. Much of my desire to cover issues concerning immigration and other social issues come from the fabric of my family history and its migration from the former Soviet Union and how that has enabled me to work with my camera. My interest in exploring reporting led me study print journalism at the George Washington University, which then led me to receive more formal training as a photographer and video journalist at the Washington Post and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
I am an English, Russian, Spanish, and Hebrew speaker and a regular contributor to the Wall Street Journal. My published work and other clients also include:
The Washington Post, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Education Week , Getty Images, GOOD Magazine, Newsweek, Arena Magazine, International Herald Tribune, National Geographic (Food), El Nuevo Día.
