About The Artwork

From the series Defaced. Edition of 20. These images are of old, decaying, defaced, weather-beaten posters on walls in both urban and rural areas of Southern India. With a population in India of 1.25 Billion, having your image on a wall means you are, for whatever reason even if only temporarily, important. Regarding these faded and defaced faces acts for me as a momento mori: No matter how famous we all end up slipping back one way or another into obscurity. The posters take on a life of their own after being exposed to the elements for so long, some ghostly and macabre, some comic and some even quite joyful. Printed on A3+ size Platinum Etching 285gsm paper, using the highest quality archival inks. Paper size 48.3cm. x 32.9cm. Image size 45cm. x 28.3cm. Signed, numbered, titled and dated on verso. Sent with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Born in 1955 in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne and could not wait to get away. Spent time after finishing an ignominious school career in Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan Pakistan, India and Nepal. Then studied Photography at Sheffield Poly, starting in 1979. Did Teacher Training and taught for 1 year at a school in North London which was more than enough. Subsequently worked for Warner Brothers in a non photographic capacity and the BBC both Teaching and Photographing. I have recently returned to working with traditional, wet processes alongside digital. The images in my portfolio start in the 70's and go through to the present day.
