Mark studied engineering and has a PhD from the University of Cambridge. His interest in film and photography began in his late teens, working on short animations and mainly monochrome images. Now based in South Buckinghamshire, UK, his practice is focussed in documentary photography, with his main interests in Social Documentary and occasional Street Photography.
