Current Photography students at USW (Caerleon Campus) are looking forward to welcoming Martin Brentl this Thursday.
Thursday 5th December @ 2.30pm
Martin Brent is an advertising and fine art photographer working out of London, Amsterdam and New York. He’s also a past President of Association of Photographers London and D&AD judge.
‘Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be a photographer, I got my first proper camera for my 10th birthday and my fully fitted photography anorak was in place from there on, its all Ive ever done and all I ever wanted to do. I studied and I assisted learning the craft and the business at the sharp end.’
Fast forwarding the next 30 years I’ve been fortunate to shoot all over the world for advertising agencies as well as shooting travel assignments for a variety of clients, with shoots for clients including Speedo, Adidas, Landrover, Swiss, HSBC, Network Rail, Sony Ericsson to name a few I feel very fortunate to be doing something I love.
In my personal work I seek the decisive moment, fragments of time, the lost moment. I’m fascinated by the scenes and events that occur unnoticed, things at the periphery of our vision, the places we pass through and events that we pass by, the in Between places if you will.’
His work is available through Eyestorm and Victor Felix Gallery, and more information can be found at: martinbrent.com
