MARK BURDEN - STORIES AND CONVERSATIONS
Preview: Monday 29th October 2018
Exhibition: 30th October 2018 – 30th November 2018
Mark is landscape photographer based in Newcastle upon Tyne. His work combines both the rural and urban landscape, including detailed work within both environments. Mark explores his ideas through the use of both colour and black and white. He works to provide an alternative perspective through his photography to the landscape that he sees, and how it connects to human world.
“Photography is for me about the expression of an idea or thought. I look to invite conversation through the impression of the landscape as seen in the images that I take. The photograph is not solely about what I am seeing. It is how my view is altered by what I am feeling, thinking or experiencing at the time, which are all important influences to the images that I present.”
Primarily a digital photographer using Micro Four Thirds cameras, Mark is also working with circa 1960 and 70’s vintage 33mm film cameras.
