Mark Hemsworth was born in 1968 in Reading and grew up in Cholsey, Oxfordshire with his family. Mark has a very broad base in the visual arts: he is a skilled draughtsman and accomplished watercolourist whose interests in recent years have shifted towards photography, film and video. He is particularly passionate about walking and the landscape.
Mark has been collecting photographs of particular subjects for many years (including aircraft, sunsets, the moon, flowers, landscapes and birds). Mark has grouped some of these collections for large framed photographic prints, each made up of 255 individual photographs, for exhibition at part of Shadowlight Artists: Rising exhibition. The film documents Marks process of collecting the photographs and the memories they represent.
