British photographer


Born in England in 1962, George studied Graphic and Visual Communications at the University of Wolverhampton, graduating with First Class BA Honors. His initial inclination towards graphics was pushed aside when he started freelance work as a photojournalist where he discovered a new love of photography. Upon moving back to London he continued in photojournalism by shooting for The Independent Newspaper and the Daily Telegraph. Over the course of the next five years he also built up his portfolio containing his unique personal work, the fine art photography. At the age of 24, he was given his first advertising commission for American Express, which catapulted George into his commercial career. Other commercial clients have included Financial Times, Architecture Magazine, United Airlines, Mercedes-Benz, Smirnoff and Shell Oil.

His images are described to be lyrical mosaics of line and color with light and deep shadows that incorporate the nocturne and its sense of mystery. He uses the grand scale of the landscape to form graphic forms of areas that have been designed and shaped by humans. His photographs often use the artifice of night to show the surrealistic quality of contrast and unanchored forms, giving an evocative other-worldliness to them.

George’s photographs have been published in books and catalogues that coincide with his past exhibitions for Arthur Andersen at the Design Museum in London (called "View 92") and through “together with Terence Conran. Great Ormond Street Appeal". This collection of images was exhibited both at the Museum for Childhood as well as Hamiltons Gallery in London, alongside pieces from photographers David Bailey and John Claridge.
George currently lives in Oxfordshire and works out of his studio in London.

Prints of his work are available through Lupe Gallery in London and the Iris Gallery in Great Barrington, MA. Slated for the near future is an exhibition in Spain and a book with images of graphic forms in the landscape.
