Mark Vessey is a British photographic artist whose work is inspired by the idea of creating art from collections of everyday objects.

He spends his life searching for that elusive edition of a magazine; that one book that will make his collection complete. He explores every facet of them with an intensity that only a collector can. He is relentless pursuit of organisation, of order.

Suitably enough, his ongoing body of work is called Collections. It takes inspiration from Mark Vessey’s love of vintage magazines like The Face and Playboy, as well as groundbreaking contemporary titles like Attitude.

Individually, these publications are a snapshot in time. When put together in physical and photographic form these collections take on new meaning. After all, this is a time when catalogues of books can be held on a Kindle, when ownership of a vast music collection is just a monthly subscription away.

“It’s a balancing act between choosing the right magazines to represent a period in time and the right spines that will sit together and capture that magazine’s identity…” – Mark Vessey

Mark Vessey also celebrates one of the enduring icons of the publishing world the Penguin paperback book.

Mark Vessey explains: “My work is about trying to establish a sense of order. There is comfort in collecting things, studying things that people take for granted, grouping every day objects into such a way that they become something special, seeing how they fit together to become a thing of great beauty.”
