Sa carrière de photographe a commencé lorsqu’il a acheté un Polaroid 195 Modèle caméra Land. Il a expérimenté diverses techniques de prises de vues, notamment les surimpressions et différentes techniques de développement ; texte de Klaus Ottmann, photos en couleurs.
“It kills me to look at my old photographs of myself and my friends. We were such beautiful, sexy kids but we always felt bad because we thought we were ugly at the time. It was because we were such outcasts in high school and so unpopular. We believed what other people said. If any one of us could have seen how attractive we really were we might have made something better of our lives. I’m the only guy that I know who wanted to run away to be a prostitute.” — Mark Morrisroe
