Mark Z Alvarez is a prize-winning contemporary photographer. Originally from East London, Mark has made Cambridge his home for over twenty years and is an established member of its vibrant and thriving arts community.

Mark has always been passionate about the arts, whether it’s music, theatre, literature, painting or photography. He was in three operas at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, as a child. However, his primary passion has always been photography, with early influences being Ansell Adams, Robert Doisneau and Henri Cartier Bresson.

Discouraged from pursuing arts qualifications at school, Mark decided to become a professional photographer later in life. He is self taught and now exhibits worldwide and has been featured in the prestgious Black and White Photography magazine.

Due to his love of travel Mark frequently enjoys discovering new, breathtaking and thought-provoking locations. Often, his subject matter is chosen and captured to provide a surreal and other-worldly atmosphere intended to stimulate the viewer's imagination.

Mark is also a management team member of Cambridge Open Studios, a prestigious organisation founded nearly fifty years ago that represents over five hundred artists and makers.

The limited edition prints are printed on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308 Fine Art photo paper, and are signed and numbered.

Mark is represented by FTSQ gallery and some prints are only available from www.ftsqgallery.co.uk/shop-original-photography
