Mark Limbrick’s career began as a research scientist working with lasers
and electron microscope images, during which time his interest in light developed
into a passion for photography. Mark studied film and photography at St Martins,
where he came under the influence of Malcolm LeGrice and structural filmmaking.
Sound was a very important part of the work he was doing at this time, using
improvised soundtracks for film scores. He was the British Council representative
for the Gaudeamus Contemporary Music Festival in Holland (1983), which culminated
with a live broadcast on Dutch radio performing on a number of sound sculptures
Mark’s approach to photography is equally experimental. He has built
and used his own cameras which scan the subject a small section at a time building
up a permanent record. This process could span several minutes or several months,
the final result never being predictable. This spirit of enquiry informs all
his work. He lives and works in Suffolk.
