Finding Your Point of View | Mark Clennon

New York-based Photographer, Mark Clennon dives into what it means to ask yourself the right questions to find your own unique point of view. TEDxHarlem Strivers’ Row Mark Clennon is a New York-based photographer with a particular focus on editorial, commercial and documentary projects. Adeptly jumping between these forms of photography, which he’s been practicing since leaving his tech job in 2017, Mark’s goal is to capture the Black experience in its totality.

His images are therefore nuanced and multifaceted, capturing joy, pain, triumph and everything in between. “In sharing my journey and process, I hope that I can challenge people to have a greater understanding of what they can accomplish by tapping into their own creativity,” he tells “It’s Nice That”. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
