Phil Dillon, Medway Member Since December 2007 Artist Statement I'm based in the Medway towns, in the south-east of England. Can I describe myself? No, but here's a testimonial from a friend who has unwittingly taught me a lot about photography:
"The Paisley Cravat (Phil) has a fresh, quirky approach to photography. He takes some brilliant candid shots, without appearing to be intrusive. He sees pictorial possibilities where others might pass by, and his recent exhibition ‘21st Century Cave Painting in Medway’ is full of humour, observation, and a clear love of his environment. His style is his own, with a great instinct for natural composition. He doesn’t shrink from the ugly, but points it up well so no comment is necessary. This is a very talented guy, he’s a musician as well as photographer, and his love of music comes through in his photo stream- though he tells me his singing voice is less gravelly since he gave up smoking. All in all, he’s a lovely bloke, and a fine photographic artist".
