Evan Skuthorpe is a London-based photographer shooting both straight and fine art photography with a conceptual focus on 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.
Born in the Australian capital in the very early 1980s, Evan spent the lion's share of his childhood living around the world, namely in Saudi Arabia, Singapore and the United Kingdom, all of which left a lasting impression. Later spending his formative years in Australia, Evan graduated High School on Queensland's Gold Coast in 1999. Aimlessly dicking around for the next year delivering pizzas and working in a fast food restaurant making the best burgers in town, Evan simultaneously studied three diplomas in software development, network engineering and multimedia in Brisbane during 2001-2002. After graduating in 2002, Evan set off on a one-way flight to cultural and historical London to seek his fame and fortune.
Professionally speaking, Evan has established a career as User Experience Designer in the creative design industries of London, having worked both in-house and agency-side for some of the UKs biggest companies in the following nearly two decades since making London his home, making a name for himself as a contractor.
Relatively recently, Evan began to develop a serious interest in photography around 2012 onwards, and soon after, this became an all-consuming passion. Evan decided to formalise his interest in photography by commencing his BA (Hons) Photography degree studies in 2015, graduating in 2019. Evan’s work is on medium and long-term projects.
Seeking to grow his profile as an artist photographer, Evan has begun to venture out, entering various photography awards and self-publishing his work and works in analogue on 35mm, medium and large formats, and sometimes digital.
