About the Artist

I began exploring the process of photography through my travels. By finding myself in unique locations with unique people, my camera was often the only constant.

Working back as I worked forwards, the cameras moved from being witness and truth-teller, to medium and story-teller as I began to realise the images I took were not the reality of my experiences, and could never reflect the truth of those experiences.

Instead by focussing on photography as an art form, I use image as a way of exploring my own ideas and the ideas of the viewer, as a starting point for a discussion on reality, memory and beauty.

As a commercial photographer, I bring the skills that define the art to create compelling narrative images that tell a story as well as challenge and satisfy aesthetic principles.

John's Photos

Art and war are forever intertwined, and there is a war raging right now. Its first major battles were fought - and won at the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th. Modernists threw out the old guard, destroyed tradition in every sense of the word and sought to create a new universal art. Their methods were violent, aggressive and extremely destructive. We live in the aftermath of their movement today, post-modernism.

Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family. Choose a fucking big television, Choose washing machines, cars, compact disc players, and electrical tin openers. Choose good health, low cholesterol and dental insurance. Choose fixed-interest mortgage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends. Choose leisure wear and matching luggage. Choose a three piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics. Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose rotting away at the end of it all, pissing your last in a miserable home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked-up brats you have spawned to replace yourselves. Choose your future. Choose life . . . But why would I want to do a thing like that?

The more I visit denmark, the more it grows on me. It's a quiet place and its style is subtle, but give the country time, and listen closely to what people have to say, and you'll understand what I mean.

These photos are a series that I featured on instagram.

2020: architectural photography, Its amazing what a world we live in - some of these images were created using a composite of 4-7 images at a wide angle. The result is a sense of scale that jumps out. Can you tell which ones (there's also an ultra wide in here that will throw you off!)

Hi there! You got to the end, why not send me a message and say hi?

Would love to hear from you!
