Michael Marten referred to himself as a "Student of tides", he realized that the fluctuating speed and levels of the sea always altered the perspective and atmosphere of the same landscape he took at different times. It is important to note that Michael Marten took a picture of landscape 6-18 hours apart to reveal the physical changes occurring on Britain seashores. 53 of these diptychs are arranged by Michael as clockwise journey around Britain. Michael sectionalized his photography book into four sections, these are; The South West, South East, North West, and the North East.
Sea change is not all about Photography at its best, the book was introduced into an essay by famous English nature writer- Robert McFarlane. Some of the pictures in this book can also be found at michaelmarten.com. Michael Marten did not just woke up one day and started taking pictures, he was reported to have scanned tide table charts, and coastal maps just to detect the best position to set up his 5x4 camera, and then investigated the periods of times at which the tides are at their lowest and highest . Michael was able to use his tripods, sticks, stones and scratch marks on rocks just to set up different positions and with the help of pencils and trace lines, he could draw pictures of the impact of changing tides.
Michael Marten was able to put up one of the most intriguing photography books with the most intriguing diptychs, with different atmosphere, people, and landscapes. According to Michael " the sea changes everything , the land it covers and the land surrounding it". Michael can also be described as the master of toe and colour; this is evident in the book.
