Arcane is a dynamic marriage of old and new technology.
The Arcane Series is a merging of unpredictability and imbalance through manipulation and distortion with an intention to explore beauty and mystery.
With the immediacy and unpredictability of polaroid photography as a platform, the traditional chemicals of a developing dark room as a studio and a digital camera to document the conversations between these unexpected blended materials – Mark Roper has created a pure and extraordinary experimentation of photography.
The resulting complexity of light, texture and form is the underlying support for this elaborate photographic study and sophisticated fine art photography.
With beginnings in London, Mark Roper now lives in Melbourne and his photographic career has spanned decades and countries.
Mark is a commercial photographer who shoots for a wide range of commercial and editorial clients including Conde Nast Traveller, Aesop and Herman Miller.
