Marc is an Adelaide-based award-winning photographic artist. At the University of Adelaide, he studied social geography, art history, and politics; later graduating from the University of Tasmania with a Master of Environmental Management.
His interests in human cultures and the natural world are explored in images from Asia-Pacific islands as diverse as Hong Kong, Hokkaido, Ouvea, Kitava, New Ireland, New Britain, New Zealand, and Tasmania.
I'm usually attracted to urban terrain, but trust my eyes wherever they lead...
