About Michael Marten

Born in London, Michael Marten started taking photographs as a teenager and has been involved with photography ever since. His first job was caption writer at the Camera Press photo agency. In 1973 he was one of a group who published 'An Index of Possibilities', an alternative encyclopedia of ideas. In 1979 he started the specialist photo agency, Science Photo Library. He has co-authored several books of scientific imagery, including 'Worlds Within Worlds' (1978) and 'The Particle Odyssey' (2002).

Since 2003 Michael has concentrated on landscape photography. His first major series was 'Sea Change' (2003-12). A new project, 'Godrevy', is published in May 2015.
