Anteros Arts Foundation

Opening Night Thursday 7th March 6pm-8pm

Photographs are perceived to present a reality which we can safely rely upon to convey information about the images they portray. In fact, the only realities are the photographer and his camera, which records whatever the photographer chooses to document and in a context of his choosing. I have taken this a stage further and have used the various techniques at my disposal to fabricate objects, such as shop window reflections and vases, upon which are imposed images relevant to any message I wish to convey and, at the same time, using the camera’s ability to lie convincingly. ​Educated at Rutlish School Merton 1943 – 50. Moved to Norfolk in 1961. Studied Fine Art – Printmaking as a mature student at Norwich School of Art and Design and graduated in 1996.
