A ferry crosses a sunlit sea towards dark distant mountains in this stunning photographic print by Mark Bartkiw. Shot from above, the viewpoint is like flying over the water and adds to the dream-like quality of the image. As an artist, Bartkiw is fascinated by the effect of slightly distorting reality to create a somewhat imaginary world. He uses a variety of techniques to create a collage of images in his artwork. This is one of an ongoing series of photographs in a collection called, ‘Uncommon Place.’
“This process of reinterpreting the world is something that I do to feel more at home in the world. But the new world we create puts us on the wrong side of the mirror, looking back at the reflection of our ever-shifting psyches.” Mark Bartkiw
He studied photography at Sheridan College. Bartkiw worked as a freelance photographer in advertising, portraiture and the fashion and music industries for a host of prestigious clients including Toronto Life, Paramount Pictures and Universal Music. His artwork is held in both private and public collections.
