VIEW IN MY ROOM
This image makes up a part of a series of ten images I shot in 2012. The idea behind the shots was to create a single organic shape from two figures. Each couple, with just their shoulders, heads and faces visible, forms an elegant yin and yang symbol against a black backdrop. It took me nearly two hours to create each shot. In the male/female pictures, the men’s shoulders were usually too overpowering at first, so I had to adjust their positions, inch by inch, until the balance was right. I wanted images led by composition something exquisite, but not erotic.This image of "Dalia & Karina" is the only image a same sex couple in the series. The images were featured in several photographic awards they appeared in the Guardian newspaper and other publications around the world https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2012/feb/10/kiss-andy-barter. This image was one of the six images in the series to be exhibited as part of 'Kus. Von Rodin Bis Bob Dylan' at The Bröhan Museum, Berlin from June 15th - October 3rd 2017, curated by Dr Anna Grosskopt. The Exhibition included work by Auguste Rodin, Edvard Munch, Alex Poulson and Bob Dylan.

I am a photographer based in central London. I have been shooting editorially and commercially for 25 years, My work has largely been to create imagery for luxury brands and publications . Clients include Omega, Patek Philliepe,Dunhill, Selfridges and Net-A-Porter and magazines such as British Vogue, Wallpaper* Esquire and GQ. I have worked on my own personal projects through out that time and have gained recognition for my projects including 'Mixed' which is a project about the lives and experiences of people who have grown up in a family that perhaps surprises others. The images present different family members, a parent, a child, a sibling or a grandparent all of whom are related. My aim was to show how society is evolving and changing, and how as it does we are all encouraged to think differently. Whilst the differences are seen on the surface through skin colour, I believe the real changes are more than skin deep and that in effect we are witnessing a coming together not only of cultures, but class, religion and genealogy. I am in a mixed relationship and together with my partner we have three children who I believe represent this aspect of a changing society. The work was exhibited 20 September 2017 – 25 May 2018, at the Migration Museum, London.
