The miniature dioramas of Mark Bartkiw

I’m a Canadian photo and video based artist. I use miniature dioramas to construct surreal scenes that create a feeling of mystery and tension. The viewer projects their own story or interpretation into the implied actions. ~Mark Bartkiw

waterThe analogue macro-photographic approach is a crucial aspect of the construction of the images. The camera captures a real space, in real light, using physical optics demonstrating an on-going fascination with photography’s ability to fabricate a world without dependence on digital manipulation.  static1-squarespace-com img_9980-2 img_9138-edit img_6837 img_6652-2 img_6464 img_6247 img_0386 img_0045 baglady
