“Follow your bliss—but be prepared to live your nightmare.”
From all outside appearances, Mark seems to have the glamorous New York City life that many
would envy. Handsome and always impeccably dressed, the charismatic former male model
works as a fashion photographer, appears in movies and attends the best parties. When he leaves

corner of a rooftop to sleep each night. Thomas Wirthensohn exposes the dark underbelly of the
American Dream in an often-merciless city.
