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, Papua New Guinea, Chatham Island, Ouvea, Okinawa, Kitava, Borneo and New Britain.

I'm usually attracted to urban terrain, but trust my eyes wherever they lead...

Marc's images have been exhibited at Australia's National Portrait Gallery, the Museum of Sydney, Ballarat's International Foto Biennale, Mildura Arts Centre, Lovett Gallery Newcastle, Dubbo Regional Gallery, Port Pirie Regional Gallery, the Centre for Creative Photography, and the Adelaide Festival Theatre. His website is archived by the National Library of Australia.
