Photographer #232: Edgar Martins

Edgar Martins, 1977, Portugal, is more than just a landscape photographer. He is known for his stunning images of mostly non-beautiful places. In 2008 he released the book Topologies, containing work from several of his series. He has photographed forests that have suffered from fire, minimalist nighttime beaches with a pitch-black sky, airport runways that resemble runways from another planet and the landscapes of Iceland. Edgar has released several monographs, exhibited throughout the world, won numerous awards and his work is in various public and private collections. The following images come from the series A Metaphysical Survey of British DwellingsWhen Lights Casts No Shadow and The Accidental Theorist.
