Born in Yorkshire, Mark studied photography at Wolverhampton Polytechnic before moving to London and working as a still life photographer. He moved to Sussex in 2001 and it was there, exploring the landscapes of the Ashdown Forest and South Downs National Park, he reignited his passion for landscape photography. In 2017 he began utilising these images to create pieces of art for his first exhibition at a local fair. Since going full time as an artist in 2018 he has exhibited across the UK and beyond. Marks work coalesces photography, painting and collage to create atmospheric pictures drawn from his expansive collection. He transforms them, revealing subtleties of colour texture and light blurring the boundaries between traditional photography and painting. Presented as limited edition prints on sheets of brushed aluminium which gives the work a uniquely dynamic look, depth of colour and contemporary feel. Each of Mark's works is titled with the GPS coordinates of where the original photograph was taken so they can be found on interactive maps, encouraging others to experience the locations in person.
