Evan Skuthorpe is a London-based photographer shooting both fine art and straight 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 conceptual work.
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. Spending his formative years in Australia, Evan graduated High School on Queensland's Gold Coast in 1999. While aimlessly dicking around for a year or so delivering pizzas and working in a fast food restaurant making burgers, Evan simultaneously studied three diplomas in software development, network engineering and multimedia in Brisbane from 2001-2002. That same year, upon graduating, Evan set off on a one-way flight to cultural and historical London to seek his fame and fortune and has never looked back.
Soon establishing a career in the design industry, Evan worked both in-house and agency-side for some of the UKs biggest names over the next decade and a half, making a name for himself as a contractor part-way through, to the present day. Go back to 2012 and Evan began to develop serious interest in photography, 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 with the Interactive Design Institute at the School of Creative Arts, University of Hertfordshire, in 2015. Finding his niche in the overlap of Fine Art and Documentary photography, Evan works on medium and long-term projects and 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.
