Mark Neville

Mark Neville was born in London in 1966. He studied fine art at Reading University before going on to complete Masters' at Goldsmiths, University of London, and Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten, Amsterdam.  

Neville works at the intersection of art and documentary, investigating the social function of film and photography. He makes lens-based works which have been realised and disseminated in a large array of contexts, as both still and moving image pieces, slideshows, films, and giveaway books. His work has consistently looked to subvert the traditional role of social documentary practice, seeking to find new ways to empower the position of its subject over that of the author. 

His works have been exhibited in numerous public collections and institutes around the world, most recently at The Multimedia Art Museum of Moscow, Russia (2017); Centre for Eastern European and International Studies, Berlin (2017); Foundling Museum, London (2017); London School of Economics, London (2014); The Photographers' Gallery, London (2013) and Kunsthaus Essen, Germany (2010). 

In 2014 Neville exhibited a body of work at The Imperial War Museum, London, made in response to the war in Afghanistan during his time as an official war artist. Neville’s solo exhibition, London/Pittsburgh, which was displayed at the Alan Cristea Gallery in 2014 travelled to The Silver Eye Centre, Pittsburgh, USA in 2015. Fancy Pictures, the first commercially available monograph book on Neville's work was published by Steidl in August 2016. The monograph was nominated for the 2017 Aperture Foundation Photo Book Award. 

Mark Neville lives and works in London.
