Martin Middlebrook originally trained as a wildlife artist before commencing a career as a commercial photographer, eventually turning to photojournalism full time. In 2010 Martin was commissioned by the Government of Afghanistan to produce a photo essay for the Kabul International Conference, a series of images that went on to exhibit at the British Museum in London in 2011. Martin has also written over 80 articles for many of the UK’s leading photography magazines, including being a lead columnist for Professional Photographer Magazine.
Martin’s work from Afghanistan has exhibited at the Foto 8 Summer exhibition, and been awarded Honourable Mentions at the International Photography Awards, ‘Editorial – War/Conflict’ and ‘A Deeper Perspective’ category. He was a recent winner in the inaugural ‘The Other Hundred’ humanitarian photography competition.
His work from Afghanistan has also been featured on renowned Franco/German TV channel ‘Arte TV’, for its 10 part series on this war-torn country.
He has worked on assignment in Nepal documenting the plight of Bhutanese refugees for a five-part TV series, again for Arte. As part of the assignment, Arte broadcast a documentary about Martin, his thoughts on photography and his working processes.
In 2014 Martin travelled to the Omo Valley in Ethiopia crafting a portfolio of portraits of the famous tribes that live in the ‘seat of humanity’. He once again received an Honourable Mention at the 2015 International Photography Awards.
In 2016 Martin worked with Stop Ivory creating an exhibition and book for the CITES (CoP17). His images from this project have been published widely around the world.
