This project results from a collaboration with inmates, incarcerated in the West Midlands (UK), their families and local organisations and individuals. By giving a voice to his subjects, the author proposes to rethink and counter the sort of imagery normally associated with incarceration and confinement.
This seminal book is brings together 5 bodies of work, inspired by both early 18th century evocations of the sublime and contemporary pictorial traditions.
But for all its historical evocation, the photographs in this publication are fraught with anxieties about ruin.
This book surveys the largest exhibition to date of the project Siloquies and Soliloquies on Death, Life and Other Interludes, at the CIAJG, Portugal, forcing us to consider photography’s role in the intelligibility of death.
Produced over a period of 12 months with the Portuguese Airport Administration Authorities this book surveys the modern airport. Pictured as the elementary expression of abstract space, in Martins’ images sky and ground collide, overlap and blur.
