The Art of the Personal Project: Mark Scott

Photographer Mark Scott discussed with Suzanne Sease what inspired him to shoot his project based on LA’s Melrose Avenue and create DopeMelrose.com.

Says Mark, “My first studio was on Melrose, right in the heart of the Melrose District. Melrose, which isn’t far from my home, is a magnet for creative people from all over the world…what I’ve always loved about Melrose are those people who do make bold personal statements with the way they look and dress. And combined with the creative street artists there’s always opportunity for pictures. That’s a good match for a social media project. There’s a great energy from street shooting, and I wanted to revisit Melrose as a project to share on social media.”
