Welcome. I am Mark Field, Professor of Cell Biology and Parasitology. I was born in London, and have the questionable honour of being a true Cockney. Educated at Corpus Christi College Oxford, I have studied and taught in New York, San Francisco, London, Cambridge and Scotland. My scientific research focuses on cell and evolutionary biology. I spend part of each year in New York and collect Gibson, Fender and Paul Read Smith guitars, amongst others.
    I have produced original digital photography for over twenty years, and selected images are displayed in the gallery. I am particularly interested in structure and texture (morphology), and how these are frequently convergent between man-made artifacts and the natural world. My images have been collected from around the globe; Europe, North America, Africa and Asia. Most of the work can be made available for purchase at modest prices. I produce books, calendars and postcards, and also curate a vast library of electronic images. I can be contacted by email if you are interested in a specific project. Exhibitions ‘Texture, structure and morality’ and ‘Guitars, ice’ were part of Cambridge Open Studios in 2012 and 2013. ‘Red dust: India dreaming’ premiered online in 2012. I am currently working on ‘An Idea of North’, a new book and exhibition for a show in 2019 inspired by landscapes in Northern Europe and America.
