Claire Armitage Talk
Saturday, Oct 5, 2019
3:15pm – 3:45pm
My passion in photography is biased towards people and their stories – whether that be portraiture, documentary or street. My work is characterised by an honest, observational approach, sometimes delivered with humour, but always with a desire to evoke emotion. I enjoy the connections that my photography brings with people, places, and history; capturing never to be repeated moments in time. Celebrating the human: the unusual and the ordinary.
Initially studying English Literature at university, I have gone on to find my true creative passion in photography, whilst bringing my enthusiasm for stories and narratives with me on the journey. I have also spent some time studying psychology, which has helped fuel my fascination in people and how they think, interact, connect and navigate their way through life. My choices of subject always come from this fascination.
I am usually working on several projects at the same time, and whilst the equipment and techniques change, what always remains consistent, is the desire to create an emotive body of work.
