Mark Bigelow has been photographing shape and form for forty years. The subject may be architectural, a figure study or a vintage tool, but all his images celebrate a graceful intersection of shape and light.
His most recent work is a series of multi-panel figure studies. The Light Dance photographs are visual improvisations between dancer and photographer. The series Rosamund Still Dances explores the life and myth of Rosamund Clifford, (known as Rosamond the Fair in English folklore) who lived at Godstow and Woodstock, and was mistress to Henry II.
The Tools still life series highlights the sometimes overlooked design of everyday household items. The personality of the designer, the era and the consumer are all brought into the foreground.
The exploration of personal expression is central to the portrait and fashion shots. Most of these shots are environmental, and feature a range of models and styles.
Mark photographs with both film (35mm, medium and large format plate film) and digital cameras.
