George Rayner Devon, United Kingdom
An emerging British visual artist from Croyde, North Devon, with a first Class BA(Hons) Photography degree at the University of Derby, completed an internship at FORMAT 21 International Photography Festival, at current a gallery assistant at Studio KIND.
He specialises in analogue black and white print, a methodical and deliberate process that reflects his visualisations. Developing the conventional analogue photographic technique into one more ecologically sustainable, and allowing nature to have a play within his work. He explores his relationship with the environment through materialistic allegory in quiet landscapes with a gentle humour. His work often considers themes of climate change and unveiling man's impact upon the earth, and his interpretation of our existence.
