Born in Scotland, Mark currently lives in Brighton after spending 10 years in Madrid, Spain. He studied architecture at the Mackintosh School in Glasgow, ETSAM Madrid, and the Bartlett (UCL) in London. His work explores the built environment and aims to challenge spatial perceptions whilst examining the process of human inhabitation.
His photographs have been exhibited in cultural institutions and art galleries, and published in books, magazines and blogs. In 2008 he was awarded a special mention in the prestigious Caja Madrid Generaciones art prize, and in 2006 was selected as an emerging talent by PhotoEspaña. In 2005 he produced a limited boxed edition of photographs along with poems by the critically acclaimed Esther Ramón, which was later published as the book Sales in 2011.
His commercial work has also gravitated towards the built environment, and he has photographed projects by leading architects such as Richard Rogers and Norman Foster. He has taught and designed two photography courses to BA students, and worked in the art publishing house Ivorypress. Mark is represented by the Madrid-based gallery Mondo Galería.
