Mark.Metcalfe

Profile/CV

Each image is totemic of a deep drive to externalize hidden things through characterisation.

Moreover, my work reflects a preoccupation with memory and nostalgia, where an image can posit a peculiar melancholy or sense of the uncanny, through a memorialization of the past, constructed through archetypal heroes, tricksters and bizarre phenomena.
