(UK , 1973)
Biography
Martin Usborne
Martin Usborne is a photographer based in
London. From a young age, Usborne experienced a deep emotional
affinity with animals of all kind, a fact that is evident in
his surprisingly affective portraits of dogs. Usborne studied at
the Glasgow School of Art and Edinburgh University. He has
had solo exhibitions at the Hackney Museum in London and
numerous other galleries in England. In 2009, he was the recipient
of the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize. Books of his photography
have been published by Kehrer (The Silence of Dogs in
Cars, 2012), Nazraeli Press, HoxtonMiniPress, and Anova Books.
