British-born, New York-based photographer Mark Borthwick (born 1966) is famed for his blurry, sunsoaked photographs, a style that has crossed disciplines and gained him equal footing in the art, photography and fashion worlds. Borthwick came to prominence in the mid-1990s with several major international exhibitions of photography; in 1998 his self-designed publication Synthetic Voices won him the Art Directors Club (New York) Silver Prize for Book Design, and his 2004 DVD collaboration with Cat Power, Speaking for Trees, further enlarged his audience. A musician, artist and poet, Borthwick conveys throughout his work an appetite for life recorded in snatched moments of bliss and delight: rainbow-like sun streaks are common effects in his photographs, as is imagery of youthful frolics in forests. The Heart Land is conceived as an artist's book convening artworks, photographs and poems by Borthwick.
