Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

This Camellia Japonica is from the series of flower portraits I've made called Plantae Secreto. I was given some Tulips as a gift by my friend Veronique, who was a florist in Paris before she moved to the UK. She mentioned that Tulips are often more interesting to look at closely when they are past their best, rather than when fresh. I loved the idea of a faded beauty, so after the Tulips I've photographed many other flowers, some from my garden, some bought and some given. I used a type of light called a Beauty Box that is normally reserved for Glamour/Portraiture work because of the soft nature of it's luminescence and had a lovely time working with the various flowers that all had their own 'Personalities' which needed to be acknowledged as part of the process of getting the best that I could from the images. I'd had the idea to photograph flowers in a portrait style some time before the Lockdowns started, so when we were all cloistered away inside our homes it became the perfect subject matter to explore. Edition of 10. Printed on high end paper with archival ink. Paper size 84.1 x 59.4cm. Image size 79.1 x 52.67cm. Signed, numbered, dated and titled on verso.

Artist Profile

Born: 1955

Hometown: London

Based in: London

I was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1955. In the mid 70s, having not done at all well at school, I decided to to take time out and go hitch-hiking, I got as far as Afghanistan. Up until that point I had no real interest in taking photographs, but that journey opened my eyes to the possibilities. I returned home, worked for a year, borrowed an old Ilford camera from my Grandfather and went off again. This time I went overland through Europe, Turkey, Iran and Afghanistan, Pakistan and on to India and finally Nepal.

On my return from Nepal I went back to education in order to qualify for a place to study Fine Art in Sheffield and graduated in 1981. I worked professionally as a freelance photographer for BBC Television, whilst continuing my own photographic projects. Originally I was working with film and print in the darkroom but as the quality of digital improved, I now predominantly use it. Film and print are now reserved for those projects where it really is the best option.

I had the idea to work on a series of Flower Portraits well before the Lockdowns, but during the time when we were all cloistered indoors because of the Pandemic, they provided the perfect subject and I found a real sense of purpose in creating them.
