Kit Martin is by nature, curious. A photographer who enjoys making images as much as taking them, she has been known to try to capture the overlapping contingencies of time and place through photography using natural elements like the sun and tide. She works with historical camera-less processes and digital, sometimes collaborating with Museums to work with natural history collections. She likes to celebrate the underdog in nature. Kit shares the processes of cyanotype, argyrotype and pinhole photography with other people, in collaboration with Museums and other venues. She is a tutor at Dundee Contemporary Arts Print Studio and works regularly with St Andrews Photography Festival and Museums and Galleries Edinburgh.
Studied Biological Imaging, Medical Illustration (photography) and Environmental Management and worked in both medical and police photography before moving into environmental work with SNH, Zero Waste Scotland and others. Since starting her freelance artistic practice, Kit’s work has been shown in Museums and Galleries around Scotland. She has twice been an invited artist with CONTACT Photo Festival in Toronto and for Analogue Dreams in Aberdeen. As a member of Shutterhub Kit has exhibited at OPEN Photomonth (London & Amsterdam), Festival Pil’ours, Retina Festival and in Cambridge and is featured in their book Yearbook 2020. As a volunteer Kit photographed people with strong links to woodlands in Scotland for Reforesting Scotland’s book Woodlanders; New Life in Britain’s Forests. She regularly runs workshops in the cyanotype process with adults and young artists as well as argyrotype and pinhole camera workshops.
