As a twelve year old Parisian boy, I chose a camera over a bicycle. Eight years later, in October of 1962, I left France for New York. I spoke no English and was overwhelmed by the American Metropolis.
Eventually I was introduced to Lisette Model. Both she and my printer recommended that I seek out Alexey Brodovitch. Consequently, I registered at Brodovitch’s “Design Laboratory” which led me to a new path, a life devoted to photography and visual poetry.
Spirits of the Forest
Art has been described as a marriage of form and content. The exploration of form is clearly the dominant theme in Kaczmarek’s imagery. Of this work he has written, “ … when there is no one to see, the forest comes alive. “
His searching vision brings a new life to the natural world for all of us to see, process and experience for ourselves .

Soon after the twin towers were destroyed in my neighborhood, I sought solitary refuge in a forest Upstate New York ,
Little did I know that I was not alone , for there were spirits everywhere .

ARAGON - Un terrain fertile a l’imagination - l’amour - C’et amour si bien exprimer par les troubadours a travers leurs poèmes chantes
Cette series d’images, est un recueil d’emotions de ce petit village medieval, a la poursuite de son propre destin —
Pourrait- il se traduire a travers une poésie visuelle dans le passage des temps??

In this book Marc is intuitively touching important aesthetic themes such as the ambiguity present in placing these found images in a common context .
The individual images and page spreads here show the evidence of the power of Marc's sensibilities in documenting his visual environment in New York from 1976 to the present.

Photography keeps me focused by working on both short and long projects : a way to disconnect so as to reconnect with my own nature which seeks to find harmony , beauty and poetry in the chaos of everyday life.
L'Âme du Pinier
Aussi loin que je me souvienne , lorsqu’enfant , quelque chose ou quelqu’un venait perturber mon environnement , j’entrais dans ma coquille , je m’y renfermais et seule la vue d’un cheval , volée sur revue , un calendrier ou un écran de tele , me rendait le calme et la serenite .
Cette sensation de paix que l’image de ce magnifique animal m’a toujours procurer, a finalement servi de fil conducteur au reste de mon expérience
This is not another book about dance . It is a book about dance but also about photography.
About the intersection of two forms of art . It is not a document of dance . It utilizes the dance and the human form to speak another language , to give photography the freedom to be other than slave to document , to be itself , to move across the page as a dancer moves across a stage .
It transcends distinctions of digital and analogies to analog .
