Mario Popham is a photographer of Japanese and English descent who is currently based in Manchester, UK. He received his B.A. honours in photography at Manchester School of Art in 2007 and has since continued to work on personal projects and commissions. His interests mainly lie in man’s paradoxical relationship to nature and how this finds expression within the post industrial British landscape.
His work has been exhibited in London, Wuhan and Rome among other places and his work, Enduring Growth was the subject of a solo exhibition at Manchester’s Cornerhouse in 2014. He was a recipient of the Magenta Flash Forward Emerging Photographer Award 2013 and was nominated for the Tim Heatherington Trust 2014. He is currently working on a series of projects with artist Tom Baskeyfield collectively titled Shaped by Stone. The second instalment is currently under production with support from Arts Council England and will be exhibited at HOME, Manchester in 2018.
