Recently he released fine art book that showcases two years of his award winning work.
The book contains 32 individual frame-able prints. Limited to 250 handmade books, each is individually numbered and signed by Mark.
“I’ve been thinking of making a book for some time now. I had a designer lined up to make a pdf version last year, thinking of chronicling the past 18 months of shooting and making it this huge thing, but it didn’t feel right. I looked into the online printing options, Blurb.com was looking pretty sweet, but it still didn’t feel right. A few photographers nearby were flying overseas to print their books, and while it seemed glamorous … it still didn’t feel right.
The past month of research and tests have led to this concept, a handmade fine art book, the product I can not only put my name to but that I can say it contains my blood, sweat, and breath holds; a labour of love.”
