"Wealth" is a portrayal of the historic George Peabody Library in Baltimore. It focuses primarily on the content of the room and the abundance of knowledge, inspiration and history. The incredible wealth of knowledge and literature in this room questions our perspective on short attention span consumption habits in the Information Age.
Mario Basner grew up in Hamburg, Germany and has always been a creative force. While fate led him towards a successful career in music first, photography has always been there and served as a creative outlet for most of his adult life. He owned & operated a custom darkroom business in Hollywood, before moving to Las Vegas in 2006. In 2013 he decided to dedicate all his time to photography and formed his company, which offered commercial, portrait and fashion work. Since then, his passion for contemporary art has resulted in the pursuit & capture of the Beelitz Series in 2014 - his debut project in the fine art domain. Mario now operates an art gallery in Las Vegas and continues to expand his fine art collection.
