Mark Power

As a child Mark Power (b. 1959) discovered his father's home-made enlarger in the family attic, a contraption consisting of an upturned flowerpot, a domestic light bulb and a simple camera lens. He chose to study painting and drawing, but he 'became a photographer' in 1983. He worked in the editorial and charity markets for nearly ten years, before he began teaching in 1992. Power is currently the Professor of Photography at the University of Brighton. Power's work has been seen in numerous solo and group exhibitions across the world and is in several public and private collections. He has published six books: The Shipping Forecast (1996), Superstructure (2000), The Treasury Project (2002), 26 Different Endings (2007), The Sound of Two Songs (2010), and Mass (2013).
