Martin Bardell

Location: London

Working exclusively based in the studio, my practice is routed within the traditions of staging and continues staged tableaux photography as an unfinished project. Social interaction, notions of zeitgeist, the analogy of ‘life as theatre’ and Social Psychology form my core interests.
