Homer Sykes

Homer SykesI am a professional magazine and documentary photographer. My principal commissions in Britain during the 1970s-1980s were for what used to be called the "weekend colour supplements" such as The Telegraph, The Sunday Times, The Observer, You and the Sunday Express magazines. I covered weekly news for Newsweek, Time, and the former Now! Magazine; covering conflicts in Israel, Lebanon, and Northern Ireland, as well as weekly news in the UK. Over the last fifty years, I have shot numerous magazine portraits of the famous and not so famous - at home, at work and at play.

Zero to Zero
An Illustrated Talk About A Trip Around the World

Andrew Chandler.

I love the fact that photography is both art and science. From my early attempts to capture images as a child with my first camera, through spending countless hours in a darkroom developing black and white prints while studying at university, to the present day, photography has always been my passion.

Travel photography holds a particular fascination for me and provides an excuse to break away from the confines of what is so often a solitary pursuit and meet people of different cultures. It also presents the challenge of encompassing many different genres. So, in January 2017 I set off on a journey around the world, starting at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. My objective was to photograph the people, landscapes and wildlife as I circumnavigated the globe - returning four months later, once again to the prime meridian.

Over the course of 118 days, I travelled through eleven countries in four continents by plane, campervan, car, boat and, of course, on foot.

School of Art

Matt Finn

In 1997 “Cool Britannia” was at its height. Brit pop was flooding the airwaves, a new Labour government took power, and a sense of hope that had not been felt for a generation was palpable.

British photographer Matthew Finn was 24, had recently graduated, and took a job at a School of Art in the outskirts of London. Over the coming year he photographed the students and the school itself.

“It was last decade before cell phones and social media, we discussed, argued and tried things out, not because we were told to but be cause we wanted to. Everything seemed possible.” - Matthew Finn “We were able to expand our creativity in any direction we wanted. Hot boxing the car in the car park at lunch then going into class to swirl paint around a canvas. Chain smoking, listening to Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam on loop on the communal tape to tape deck, skateboarding in the corridors, mushrooms in the street, paper mache boobs, tampon sculptures, I can’t imagine any other form of education being that life changing.” - School of Art Student
