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
The 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.
