Renowned British photographic artist Mark Vessey celebrates icons of our popular culture, his pieces now iconic in their own right. Each piece reflecting a snapshot in time, COLLECTIONS highlights how the literary, visual, and musical ephemera of all our lives reflects not only our personal histories but the cultural zeitgeists that influence our time.
Vessey’s natural wit and ability to tap into and distil the very pulse of our popular culture makes him one of the most exciting and collectable photographers of our time. As Simon Fanshawe says of Vessey’s work: 'Out of the blur will come you'.
Vessey’s work resides in prestigious collections worldwide and has been celebrated in publications including The Observer, The Times, The Telegraph, and Creative Review. His work has been shown at the Royal Academy of Arts in London and exhibited to great acclaim in both solo and group gallery shows worldwide and at international art fairs. His donated work has raised thousands for both the Stonewall and Albert Kennedy Trust charities.
“There is comfort in collecting things, studying things that people take for granted, grouping everyday objects into such a way that they become something special, seeing how they fit together to become a thing of great beauty.” Mark Vessey
