About me

 

When I'm not chasing the next shot, watching films, going to gigs, or scouring galleries for inspiration I can usually be found somewhere loudly bashing keystrokes into sentences. In addition to this, I occasionally get to travel to different countries, whilst working as a contributor to New York based photo agency Polaris Images. To date, I've had the good fortune to have my work published in National Geographic Traveller, Rolling Stone, Der Spiegel and The Guardian amongst others. Exhibition-wise my work has been shown in the UK, USA and France. If you would be interested in seeing a larger portfolio of my work please visit my site at markesper.com or drop me a message here on the dots. Thanks for stopping by. Mark.
