about PsycheFineArt

Male

Now retired, I am a medieval historian and teacher by profession who originally took up photography so that I could record buildings and use illustrative slides in the classroom. From that I developed an interest in portrait photography and then one evening in 2004, while browsing the net, accidentally came across the oeuvre of the great New York art nude and portrait photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston. I had not spent very long looking at his fine monochrome images, which outclass practically everything else in the genre I have ever seen, before deciding that I wanted to work in the same style. Between 2005 and 2007 I did so, and after an intense and informative learning curve managed to produce work which still gives me pleasure. Some of those pieces are in my portfolio here. The realisation that Johnston had himself been influenced by earlier art led me to other work too, and especially to the Dutch painters of the Golden Age. Little has changed in the art of creating beautiful images since the days of Rembrandt and Vermeer. Hence, I regard myself principally as an art photographer, whose main concern is always to produce work which is both beautiful and artistically satisfying. Models who work with me tend to find that my images of them do not look like anybody else's images of them. I like to think that some of them contain the sort of art that conceals art, but most of those things I learnt from others.
