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 series of images is called What Lies Beneath, exploring my academic research in photography. I’m now beginning work on a new photographic essay centred on wind farms.
There are also some details on my academic work here. There is a search function at the bottom of every page; fuller menus and features (tags, archives, Twitter links etc.) appear on all pages except this one and the gallery pages.
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…
