Photographer Martin Usborne’s key interest is man’s relationship to (other) animals. Although his imagery is sometimes dark – capturing the way in which we silence, control or distance ourselves from other animals – his pictures strive for a subtle humour.
Martin often undertakes editorial or commercial commissions and his work is regularly featured in international magazines and has been seen in group and solo shows around the world as well as in the National Portrait Gallery London. He has had four books published.
Martin lives and works in London. He studied philosophy and psychology and then 3D animation before finally settling on photography.
He is currently spending a year to see how many animals he can save in 365 days.
