Mark Taylor is a local photographer, based in Leigh on Sea. He’s started taking photographs of Old Leigh just recently, having decided to participate in Blipfoto’s project – ‘Make history – a photo a day’. Working late nights, it seemed perfect to spend his mornings walking around Old Leigh and capturing people walking on the beach as well as fishermen at work. View his photo-diary here.
He quotes Henri Cartier-Bresson as a big influence – like him, he’s mostly interested in people and their connections, using the environment as a backdrop.
