The book Third Space: Landscapes & Windows accompanied Mark Adams' recent solo photography show and comprises a selection of photographs taken between 2000 and 2014 in various locations from southern Spain, the United States, Sweden and northern Britain. These photographs explore the third space – a locale where, according to theorist Edward Soja, ‘everything comes together… subjectivity and objectivity, the abstract and the concrete, the real and the imagined, structure and agency’. To compliment the show at PS Mirabel, Manchester in March 2015, this book is a retrospective of Mark Adams’ work to date and provides images and selected texts that group various bodies of work together geographically promoting connections and disjunctions.
Mark Adams is a Manchester-based photographer specialising in colour landscape photography. His research takes the form of photographic projects that examine the relationship between landscape photography and broader societal issues such as urban regeneration, surveillance, the environment and ecology. Mark's work also explores pastoral representations of Britain for the purpose of critique, and as an ongoing interest in the relationships between romanticism and topography in landscape photography. His work questions romantic notions of landscape as harmonious and timeless and presents unmediated images, which allow the viewer to read the landscape as a map or a text – an inscribed surface that contains multiple layers of meaning. He has worked on many commissions in the publishing industry, published in international journals in addition to exhibiting prints in the United States, England and Europe. During his study at the Royal College of Art, he received the Chris Garnham Memorial Prize for Photography. He is represented by Millennium Images and Arcangel Images, and lectures in Photography at the University of Bolton.
