Colin New Hanoi to China 19th October
Colin’s work is very diverse and ranges from his dark melancholy landscapes to his ethereal flower studies. “I photograph what gives me an emotional response. All my pictures – even the commissions – become personal pictures. They are all autobiographical in some way or another – it’s a sort of hidden autobiography. My themes have chosen me – I have not selected them.”
Colin chooses a quotation from Tony Ray Jones to summarize the way he works.
“Photography can be like a mirror and reflect life as it is. But I also think it is possible to walk like Alice through the Looking Glass – observe the puzzles in one’s head and discover another kind of world with a camera.”
