Simon Painter is a photographic artist based in Surrey with a fascination for light, texture and movement. Moving the camera whilst shooting can change the focus of an image from the objects in the scene, to the light between those objects. It's also possible to manipulate and distort objects to create atmosphere and beauty. "My work is not a representation of reality but uses the world around me as a brush with which to create new images.""I try to create a sense of movement in all my images. My urban landscapes reflect hectic city life but the ethereal soft nature of the pictures also represents more of the non physical side to our lives such as thoughts, emotions and dreams."
