John Gaffen, London Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement I am a professional photographer living in South East London. I am a member of a Tea Leaf Arts, a co-operative, artist led, gallery in Brockley, Lewisham. Subjects that interest me the most, include modern and classical architecture, nature, rural life, landscapes and seascapes. My art practice centres around nature and the passing of the seasons. I have been involved in a long-term project to record a photographic essay of Beckenham Place park, with an emphasis on different weather and light conditions encountered through the cycle of the seasons.
More recently I have become interested in using my photographs to create abstract works, based on surface textures and patterns of man-made objects and architectural details.
