Evan Skuthorpe is a London-based photographer shooting fine art and documentary photography documenting the banality of life in the urban environment. Currently studying a Bachelor of the Arts (Hons) degree in Photography via the Interactive Design Institute at the School of Creative Arts, University of Hertfordshire, his interest lies in straight photography as well as the more conceptual.
Born in the Australian capital in the very early 1980s, Evan Skuthorpe spent a sizeable portion of his childhood living around the world, namely in Saudi Arabia, Singapore and the United Kingdom, all of which left a lasting impression. Evan spent his formative years in Australia, graduating High School on the Gold Coast in 1999, later studying three simultaneous diplomas in software development, network engineering and multimedia in Brisbane. After graduating in 2002, Evan set off on a one-way flight to London to seek his fame and fortune.
Around 2012 onwards, Evan began to develop a more serious interest in photography, and soon after, this became an all-consuming passion. He started shooting seriously only recently, finding his niche somewhere between Fine Art and Documentary photography in which he works on medium and long-term projects. Evan decided to formalise his interest in photography by commencing his BA (Hons) Photography degree studies with the Interactive Design Institute at the School of Creative Arts, University of Hertfordshire, in 2015. He will graduate in 2019.
Seeking to grow his profile as an artist photographer, Evan has begun to venture out, entering various photography awards and self-publishing his work. Evan works in analogue on 35mm, medium and large formats, and sometimes with digital.
