Born in New York, appropriately in the Year of the Rat, Mitchell Parnes is a Los Angeles based fine-art photographer. He focuses his camera on people, places and things thgrough out the world in an attempt to capture the inherent strength of people and lands they inhabit. Ireland, Asia, Africa, Europe, Cuba and Scandinavia are but a few of the places he's visited. These are some examples of his work from his last several exhibitions. Japan, 2010, is his most recent photo exhibition. Enjoy. All comments are appreciated.
