About the event
We are thrilled to be hosting Mark Cator’s visually stunning and lyrical short film Finding Emerson, on the photographer Peter Henry Emerson, as part of our opening exhibition Weathering: New Art from East Anglia.
Mark Cator has a long-standing relationship with photography having worked in photojournalism and illustration for 20 years and going on to complete a BA in Cultural Studies and Creative Writing at The Norwich Art School in 2004. Publications include Marshland (2005): Hinterland (2006): Flavour of the Month (2008) and Keepers (2013). He now works as a photographer/artist, recently examining issues around war, childhood, collective and the hyperreal, material object, and the garden.
His passion for photography has resulted in a desire to encourage more people to get involved with the medium and have the chance to explore its wider uses as a means of expression, and in 2015 he developed the Utter concept as a platform to achieve this aim. He has published five issues of Utter Journal and expanded Utter Studios, within a former Great Yarmouth fishing warehouse, to deliver gallery and artist workspace, hosting exhibitions in collaboration with other artists.
Mark is co-founder of the Finding Emerson Photo Festival, launching in June 2021.
