I am a photographer and academic. This site is primarily about my photographic interests, with my galleries and the blog being updated most frequently. Image galleries are divided into broad categories to make navigation easier: use the drop-down menu at the top of the page, or click these links: landscapes, portraits, projects, events. My most recent completed series of images is called What Lies Beneath, exploring my academic research in photography. I am now working on a new photographic “book” examining the aesthetics, politics, nature of windfarms, called Wind power.
There are fuller menus and features (search, tags, archives, Twitter links etc.) on all pages except this one and the gallery pages.
I have an academic website too, with an occasional blog about my research and work in academia.
I support Beyond Words, the UK’s best photographic bookshop – use it or lose it! (No, I don’t earn anything from them, but they are the best!)
Finally, if you’re looking for the Michael Marten who created the ‘Sea Change’ images, that’s not me…
