Bio – Projects

Born in London, 1968.
Now living in Bath, England.

“Whilst Wilson utilises the language of the landscape photograph, The Last Stand is far removed from the genre in the traditional sense, firmly placing him within a small group of contemporary photographers whose work — whilst landscape in nature — has more in common with that of the documentary photographer.”

Wayne Ford former art director of The Observer’s award winning colour magazine & Design Director of Haymarket Business Media 

“All these landscapes (because one is dealing here with landscapes even if they are far from the usual cliches of green meadows) have a story in common – the story of their abandonment by man…What Marc Wilson allows us to see is their survival, revealing their intrinsic beauty”
Mouvement magazine, France.

My current project, The Last Stand, has been photographed throughout the UK and Northern Europe.

I have exhibited in many solo and group exhibitions, both in the UK and in internationally in Milan, Grenoble and New York.
Exhibitions include The Terry O’Neill Award, 2013, the inaugural solo shows at the Back Hill and Now Showing galleries (London); a solo show at Focal Point gallery, Southend and group shows at Art 2001, Photo2005, The Photographers Gallery, The Association of Photographers gallery and Lucy Bell Fine Art.
