Third generation artist and photographer, Mark Maxwell Abushady grew up in an artistic and musical family which included an avid photographer father, Amin Ramzy Abushady, and an aunt, Hoda Garnett, who had been a professional, teaching photographer for many years. Childhood trips to the photo section of the United Nations included watching the printing and developing processes - always a source of fascination. Mark's photos hang in the homes of many New Yorkers, and several have been published in trade magazines and, notably, as covers for Creations Magazine.
