Now that the holiday season is underway and the galleries of Borderstan are closing out the year with their December shows, we have one more to report on that should be on your 2013 calendar.

Although not a traditional gallery space, TTR Sotheby’s International Realty (1506 14th St NW) is now showing their latest artist in their emerging artist showcase series. Now through January, Mark Parascandola will show his powerful and mind opening photography.

The work in this show is a retrospective of Parascandola’s use of architecture as a focus for his explorations. Mark Parascandola, a PhD epidemiologist by training, uses photography to explore patterns of movement in human populations, focusing on architecture as evidence of often-invisible social, environmental, and economic processes.

Parascandola lives, works and is now showing within the borders of Borderstan.   He was also recently selected as a finalist for the 2011 Sondheim Prize, and four of his images were chosen by Corcoran Gallery of Art curator Amanda Maddox for inclusion in her section of the FotoDC Flash exhibit. Mark creates his own limited-edition digital prints using pigment inks on watercolor paper.

TTR Sotheby’s International Realty is proud to showcase his work from Thursday, November 29th until January 11 at their office at 14th and P Street NW. The closing reception will be on January 10 from 6 to 8pm. For more info about Parascandola’s work, visit
