Art I like lately - Simon Marsden and Adam Weiss

For this week's Arthole Radio show I wanted to mention the work of a couple of photographers I'm digging lately.

The first is Simon Marsden, whose work can be found on the website THE MARSDEN ARCHIVE:
"Over the last eleven years THE MARSDEN ARCHIVE has become widely recognised as a unique picture library specialising in the fantastic and the supernatural.

Exclusively holding Simon Marsden's extraordinary and powerful black and white images the collection contains material from the Brit
ish Isles, Ireland, France, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Romania and the USA.

Categories include haunted houses, mystical landscapes, romantic ruins, gothic graveyards, secret gardens, fantastic follies, crumbling castles, grotesque gargoyles, moonlit abbeys and many more."


The second photographer is Adam Weiss:
"Currently his work ranges from portraiture and large scale conceptual advertising projects to intimate portraits of real people in ethereal landscapes. The word cinematic is often used when describing his work."

So, yeah. Check 'em out!
