Marc Wilson – Memories in the landscape

  • Talks
  • 01/05/20

Marc Wilson is an award-wining documentary photographer who makes work around the memories, histories and stories that are set in the landscapes that surround us. Marc works on long-term documentary projects, such as his previous work, completed in 2014, ‘The Last Stand’ and his current work, ‘A wounded landscape’, made at over 160 locations throughout Europe and former Soviet republics. He combines travelling for these personal projects with commercial practice and lecturing.

Marc tells stories through his photography, focusing at times on the landscape itself, and the objects found on and within it, and more recently combining landscape, documentary, portrait and still life, along with audio recordings of interviews and sounds, to portray the mass sprawling web of the histories and stories he is retelling.

His work was one of the winners at The Terry O’Neill award in 2013 and ‘The Last Stand’ was published as a book in late 2014. It sold out of its 1st and 2nd editions and a new 3rd edition is currently in production.
Solo exhibitions include those at The Royal Armouries Museum, Focalpoint Gallery and The Anise Gallery, London. Group shows include those at The Photographers Gallery and the Association of Photographers gallery, London, and internationally at The Athens PhotoFestival, 2015 and Tel Aviv Museum of Art, 2018. His work has been published in journals, magazines and national newspapers ranging from The Sunday Times to the British Journal of Photography, Raw Magazine, Wired, Vice and Dezeen.

Marc will talk about working on long term projects, photo books and funding.
