Collections by Mark Vessey
For British photographer Mark Vessey it’s all about creating art and order from everyday objects and for his ongoing series Collections, magazines and books take center stage.
My work is about trying to establish a sense of order. There is comfort in collecting things, studying things that people take for granted, grouping every day objects into such a way that they become something special, seeing how they fit together to become a thing of great beauty
Vessey is always “searching for that elusive edition of a magazine; that one book that will make his collection complete” and ready to photograph. From old staples like Vogue and Playboy to more contemporary offerings like The Face, Altitude and POP Vessey gathers then creates highly stylized images of his groupings.
