Mark Vessey is a British photographic artist whose work is inspired by the idea of creating art from collections of everyday objects. He spends his life searching for that elusive edition of a magazine; that one book that will make his collection complete. He explores every facet of them with an intensity that only a collector can. He is relentless pursuit of organisation, 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.”
His work as a photographic artist has been brought by Kate Moss and Graham Norton and featured in Love Magazine, Attitude and The Times amongst other publications. Mark’s homage to Kate Moss, depicting the magazine spines of 20 years of Vogue covers with Kate on the cover, was chosen by St Pancras Editions as one of a series of limited edition artworks to be exhibited at St Pancras Hotel. His donated work has raised thousands of pounds for both the Stonewall and Albert Kennedy Trust charities.
Vessey was born and bred in East London in 1982.
