Guy Martin comes from England’s windswept Cornish coast and is currently based in Istanbul, Turkey. He is represented internationally by Panos Pictures and is an associate lecturer in Press and Editorial Photography at the University of Falmouth, UK.
He graduated with a first in Documentary Photography from the University of Wales, Newport in 2006. Guy began pursuing long term personal documentary projects while studying at Newport, one of which, ‘Trading over the Borderline’, won him the Guardian and Observer Hodge Award for young photographers.
He went on to pursue a longterm project on nationalism and the rebirth of the Cossack movement in Southern Russia and the Caucasus, which culminated in the documentation of the Russian/Georgia conflict in August 2008. From January 2011 he began to document the revolutions sweeping through the Middle East and North Africa, photographing the revolution in Egypt before documenting the civil war in Libya in April 2011. In 2012, his work from Egypt and Libya formed the basis for joint exhibitions at the Spanish Cultural Centre in New York, HOST Gallery in London, the Third Floor Gallery in Cardiff and the SIDE Gallery in Newcastle. He had his first solo show “Shifting Sands” at the Poly Gallery in Falmouth.
His work has appeared in the Guardian, Observer, Sunday Times, The Daily Telegraph, Der Spiegel, D Magazine, FADER Magazine, Monocle Magazine, Huck Magazine, The British Journal of Photography, ARTWORLD, The NewStatesman, The Wall Street Journal and Time.
