Mark Tamer

Experimental photographer

For nothing can be sole or whole
That has not been rent.

W.B. Yeats, Crazy Jane Talks With the Bishop

Scars have the strange power to remind us that our past
is real.

Cormac McCarthy, All the Pretty Horses

Look out honey, cause I'm using technology!
Ain't got time to make no apology
Solar radiation in the dead of night
Love in the middle of a fire fight

Iggy and the Stooges, Search and Destroy

I am an experimental photographer working with both
analogue and digital mediums. Through my work I’m looking
to find a balance between chance and control, and
between; construction and destruction, signal and noise
and ultimately, life and death. I embrace the accidents
and errors as they not only remind us how vulnerable and
delicate we are, they can often show us something new. It
is at the point of breakdown that the medium begins to
reveal itself. Through glitches and mistakes we get to
see the base elements, the very construction of the
material that creates those illusions of reality, the
apparatus of photography itself.
