Martin Seeds is a photographer from Belfast. His current practice centres on Northern Ireland. Romantic and imperial nationalism, the relationship to land, notions of home and belonging are areas of interest. The act of travel and exploration, although mostly invisible to the viewer, are an important part of his practice.
Seeds often combines work from a broad range of activities, processes and techniques – contact printing images from a smart phone screen in the darkroom, producing large scale photographs from a 5x4 field camera, found objects, found photographs, digital collage and small sculptural pieces.
His work has been part of group shows including: ‘Fresh Faced Wild Eyed’ at the Photographers Gallery London, East London Photo Festival, Brighton Photo Fringe, Tokyo Institute of Photography - Photo Book Show, ByrdCliffe AIR programme New York and Cork Photo Festival.
Seeds earned a BA(Hons) in Photography from the University of Brighton and is currently studying for a post graduate degree.
