Originally from West Cornwall, Kevin now lives and works in Nottingham, East Midlands.
Growing up in the southwest of the UK in the 60s/70s meant that creative art and artists were never too far away. Indeed, the natural environment of cliffs, moorland, beaches and sea provided an ever-changing landscape, etched and worked by wind, rain and tide.
A great deal of Kevin’s creative output was initially through music – playing, composing and teaching. He was Musician in Residence at Loughborough University, working creatively with poets, writers and other musicians.
Although he has always taken photographs, it was not until 2006 that he began to take it seriously. The advancement of digital technology began to open up the more affordable possibilities for experimentation with long exposures using intentional camera movement (sometimes referred to as ICM) and for using multiple exposures (ME) combined with various blending modes to produce images that could be visually challenging and that tend to ‘ask questions rather than provide all the answers.’
It is this search for the unexpected, and the emotional connection with the landscape, realized through a variety of processes in building and creating images that drives his passion for photography.
