An Image A Week: Edgar Martins

Edgar Martins' images explore (often dramatically) the psychology of space. There is a distinct alienation and surreality present in the spaces depicted in his photographs, which through the drama of light and dark take on the quality film stills. According to the artist, his work is:

"A stage for the encounter with the everyday, my work calls to our attention that all is flow, all boundaries are provisional, all space is permeable. It is the setting for spatial and temporal dislocation.”

Martins new monograph Topologies was recently published by Aperture. You can see more of Martins work on his website.
