The Furthest Lands. Dungeness Kent.
"The Furthest lands" series chronicles Marc’s solitary and endless journey across all points of the Dungeness beach Kent, over a period of 3 years from 2013. Creating hauntingly beautiful and etheric photographs - permanently evading all demarcations of time, space and fixed bearing. These images are made using a traditional large format field camera and experimental photographic techniques with uncertain outcomes. It is not the end result that is so important, but the process of remembering.
A Place Much Like The Earth. Dungeness Kent.
A few hundred years hence, in this same place, another traveller, as despairing as myself, will mourn the disappearance of what I might have seen, but failed to see. I am subject to a double infirmity: I am hurt by everything I see, and I constantly reproach myself for not looking as much as I should. Claude Lévi-Strauss, "Tristes Tropiques"

"Beyond the Furthest lands” is an on going project responding to the natural hidden beauty beneath the white cliffs of Dover and the Loneliness of the "traveller" Against this backdrop my work explores ways to encourage the viewer to re evaluate the way in which their own relationship with the landscape and it's stories are formed, the extent to which it is a product of cultural heritage or personal experience and how this has been instrumental in their identity.
