Mark Power is a British-based photographer.
Mark has published five monographs: The Shipping Forecast (1996), a poetic response to the esoteric language of daily maritime weather reports; Superstructure (2000), a documentation of the construction of London’s Millennium Dome; The Treasury Project (2002), about the restoration of a nineteenth-century historical monument: 26 Different Endings (2007), which documents those landscapes unlucky enough to fall just off the edge of the London A-Z, a map which could be said to define the boundaries of the British capital; and The Sound of Two Songs (2010), the culmination of his five year project set in contemporary Poland.
In 2007 he tried his hand at curating. Theatres of War featured the work of five artists whose work is concerned with contemporary conflict and surveillance. It opened at the Oskar Schindler factory in Krakow, Poland in May.
Mark Power joined Magnum Photos in 2002, becoming a full Member in 2007. Meanwhile, in his other life, he is the Professor of photography at the University of Brighton.
