LUKE FORSYTHE

I AM A BORN LONDONER AND LONDON-BASED DIRECTOR AND PHOTOGRAPHER.

AT THE CORE OF MY WORK IS A LONG-TERM RECORD OF THE EVERYDAY AND AN ENJOYMENT OF THE BEAUTY AND INSIGHT THAT RECORDING AND RE-PRESENTING ‘NORMAL’ LIFE OFFERS. LIVING IN BRIXTON HAS IMPRESSED ON ME  THAT NORMAL LIFE IS NEVER AVERAGE.

MY WORK SPANS MOVING-IMAGE, STILLS AND WHAT ARE NOW BEING CALLED CINEMATOGRAPHS – A BEAUTIFUL ARENA THAT IS OPENING UP BETWEEN THE TWO.

WORKING WITH NON-ACTORS AND PREFERING NATURAL LIGHT ARE TWO FACTORS AMONG MANY THAT I FEEL BRING A SENSE OF SINCERE WARMTH AND HUMANITY TO MY WORK. SOMETHING I CONSIDER RARE AND IMPORTANT IN OUR PRESENT CULTURE OF OVERLY MANIPULATED IMAGES.

WHETHER IMAGES ARE PEOPLED OR NOT, I AM DRAWN MORE TO CAPTURING GENUINE EMOTION AND HOW WE ACTUALLY FEEL OVER HOW WE SHOULD OR ARE EXPECTED TO FEEL. I THINK OF THE SKIRMISH LINE BETWEEN THESE TWO POSITIONS TO BE THE BEST PLACE TO MAKE IMAGES. OVER THE YEARS I HAVE DEVELOPED THE CRAFT OF CAPTURING THESE MOMENTS AS THEY ARE, OR RECREATING THEM IN A NON-DOCUMENTARY SETTING BOTH IN MOVING AND STILL IMAGERY.
