Barry Cawston Biography

"Recipient of numerous awards, including the ᅠPresident’s Award at the RWA ᅠOpen Photography Exhibition, Cawston exhibits widely at prestigious galleries and art fairs and his fine art photographs are now held in several notable public and private collections. His work demonstrates that in the hands of an artist of talent, photography can be a powerfully expressive medium able to create art of great beauty andᅠ to transmute the ordinary into the unexpected. Shot on a large format camera, Cawston’s images, whether landscape or cityscape, interior or figurative, display a fascination with shape, pattern, colour and texture and, coupled with metaphor and association, the poetry which these qualities can often suggest. Taken as a whole, his work seems to express an almost visceral response to the visual world."

- Hugh Mooney ART Magazine


Frequently, he says, admirers note the ghosts of painters past in his subjects: "It all began with the photo of the pool. I just stumbled across it after waking up one morning and thought: that is a photographic version of a Hockney painting. Had I been an hour later, or an hour earlier, it would have been totally different."
