The show compliments Turner Contemporary who are running a major exhibition entitled ‘Animals & Us’ 25th May – 30th September 2018, which has challenged our creative community to reflect on the relationship between humans and animals.
The show starts on Saturday 12 May 2018 with 'meet the artist' between 2pm-4pm
I’ve always had a natural affinity with animals and they appear to trust me and relax in my company. I first got into photography and shooting wildlife when I started scuba diving back in the 80’s. It was a way of showing people the wondrous creatures I’d encountered on my many dives. I was given the nickname “the Sharkhunter” by fellow divers because I was always chasing after sharks trying to capture photographs of them.
I like to try to understand and capture a beautiful portrait of an animal that hopefully displays its character, rather than just a pleasing but superficial photo. This is why I prefer to process my images in black & white as it is less distracting than colour and focuses the viewer’s attention on the subject.
I will be showing some colour work also, but my main theme will be images in black & white.
Some of the photographs I will be exhibiting are in this post.
