Despite (or maybe because of) spending my formative years in the grey concrete jungles of the Far East, I fell profoundly in love with nature and now use my art to encourage people towards reverence for Mother Nature. Inveterate nomad and landscape photographer, I am most likely to be found in one of two places: camping in my tent or in my beloved darkroom developing and printing images of the forests and woodlands that are so magical to me.
I started photographing in my teens, a pastime I shared with my Dad. Now a professional photographer, I work in large format black & white, using the lack of colour to highlight nature’s abundant textures, tones and shapes. Largely self-taught, I have also studied with celebrated master printers including John Blakemore and Bruce Barnbaum. I am a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS), a member of the Film Shooters Collective, and hold an MSc in Environmental Decision Making.
I am currently working on a multi-year project, On Your Doorstep, documenting the immense natural beauty to be found in commuter belts and other non-iconic locations in the UK. My work and projects can be found at www.thurmanovich.com.
