Recent shows at Gallery Sink are Emotional Distance (landscape), Human Form and Social Landscapes (social documentary).    Photography exhibits culled from and created on the Internet has been a fifteen-year passion with Mark. He achieved successful results with web sites such as (TheSight.com) and by assembling traveling exhibitions from the net such as "Off The Highway".

Mark’s family heritage in photography runs deep. Sink's on-going research is on his great grand father photographer James L. Breese, who was the founder, member and primary inspiration for the Camera Club of NY one of the earliest grouping of fine art photographers in America. And further back Samuel Finley Breese Morse, (Breese’s uncle), was "the father of American photography" and inventor of the telegraph. With this legacy in mind Sink, has formed a monthly Salon of artists both on the Internet and in his living room.
