Annene von Durchgerockt says:
"Mark does himself a disservice when he says “i collect mug shots.” He’s a curator of mugs and he makes mugs happen when he makes collages happen.
We don’t talk about the human face enough on Flickr but that’s okay because we have Least Wanted to show us how the human face can be dissected over and over again."

"this stream may be the darkest and most intense in the entire flickr universe....i find it difficult to look at for any length of time...which ironically...is why i enjoy it so much"

"this man shows me how close I am to nobody.
nobody famous, nobody seen, nobody heard, nobody wanted.
and somehow, I come away feeling a little more human."

"As we see people who are more than numbers from the past, I think he reminds us on a daily basis to see the Least Wanted with fresh eyes in the present as well. Captivating, addictive and all too human."
