PHOTO DIARY: MARTIN BRADLEY

Image based on a photograph taken by Annette L Morris and supplied by © Martin Bradley 2021.

Exploring Dover using nothing but a camera phone, Martin Bradley captures a candid Dover; unedited and unabridged.
Martin has been supplying DAD with photos from his walks during lockdown. We will be sharing a selection of his photos here and on our festival-specific Social Media sites.

Martin writes, “although I often present the positive aspects of Dover and the surrounding area in my work, l find urban decay interesting. For me, it is often a vibrant subject matter. I can make a rusty screw or a broken window into art.” 

BIOGRAPHY Born in 1959, Martin Bradley grew up near Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire, four miles from the seaside resort of Blackpool. After a few years working, he studied geography at Durham University, graduating in 1982. He has lived in Dover since 1985 and is a photographer, occasional artist and writer and human rights activist.
