About Michael Marten
Featured on LensCulture
- Famed writer James Joyce has been inspiring other artists for decades. Michael Marten traveled around Dublin Bay, photographing scenes and sequences that echo the words of Joyce’s Ulysses. Photography is a likely medium to illustrate wordplay like this reflection by Stephen Dedalus: “A very short space of time through very short times of space.”
- The dramatic daily push-and-pull of ocean tides depicted in diptychs by UK photographer Michael Marten makes for some jaw-dropping wonder. The pairs of photos were made from the exact same vantage point, usually within 24 hours of each other.
