Mark Page

Mark Page asks a serious question: “Can I make a kind of fucked up social documentary photography series about Britain using dioramas made up of images sourced from the net so I can stay at home and watch the telly at the same time?” Mark Page captures the sometimes strange existential experience of what it is to be urban, British Northerner and a documentary photographer.

He’s also the creator of the emergent world of Sodley-on-Sea an almost real seaside town that only exists as dioramas created in his living room (seemingly) under the influence of too much kebab shop hot sauce, the unwatched echo of ITV’s daytime programming and a desire to reveal British identity and British photography through its own slippery stereotypes.

Sodley-on-Sea

Can you make a kind of fucked up social documentary series about Britain and it’s photography traditions using dioramas made up of images sourced from the internet so you can stay at home and watch the TV at the same time?
