Jo’s work examines the psychology of landscape, recording points where the human effect on nature is revealed. He is fascinated by the point where state, corporate and public space meet and attempt to bridge the polarities between the image as document and as subjective expression of the photographer.
A self-taught photographer exploring the artistic possibilities of digital processes. His images are often created by processing photographs and found images through computer programs he writes. He has a background in music and 15 years as a professional interactive designer.
His work exists as large scale, glossy, colour photographic images of carefully selected interior spaces that allude to architectural and stylistic perfection, spaces that are constructed with specific intent. Environments that are created for the moment, to be visited only long enough to perceive a general feel; they are not for close scrutiny.
Angus trained for the construction industry, but they didn’t want him, so he turned to photography. Twelve years later he now works in the corporate sector, a mortgage precluding him on from fashion photography and photojournalism which he attempted in the past. He documents artists work and skateboarding, and wherever his short attention span takes him.
David began his work in the mid 1970s. Choosing to “photograph in an oppositional way to the state, he has built a body of work based around the belief that visual evidence of society’s problems can motivate people to respond with positive action. He is possibly best known for his pictures of uncomfortable subjects such as protests, drug abuse, racial politics and homelessness.
