Welcome. I am Mark C. Field, Professor of Cell Biology and Parasitology at the University of Dundee. 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 the parasite Trypanosoma brucei, with major interests in cell biology and evolutionary biology. I spend part of each year in New York and collect Gibson, Fender and Paul Read Smith guitars.
    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. The 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 very 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 ‘The Idea of North’, a new book and exhibition for a show in 2019 inspired by landscapes and ice in Northern Europe and America.
