Martin Seeds completed his MA in Photography at the University of Brighton in 2016. He is a lecturer, trustee of Brighton Photo Fringe and co-found of Niagara Falls Projects Space.
His practice is shaped by his relationship with his Northern Irish homeland which he left in 1986. As part of his practice he experiments with tradition photographic processes and combinations of analogue and digital imaging technologies to draw attention to the complex and conflicting experiences of Northern Irish identity, politics and culture. In 2017 he was awarded a Magnum Graduate award for his body of work titled Assembly. In November 2017 Assembly was exhibited at the Irish Cultural Centre in Paris.
Seeds' work has been part of group shows including: ‘Fresh Faced Wild Eyed’ @ 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.
