About

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 documenting the banality of life in the urban environment.

Bio

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 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.

In the late-2000s, Evan started to develop his interest in photography and by the next decade, this became an all-consuming passion. Shooting seriously for around two years, recently Evan has found 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 photographs on digital and analogue cameras in 35mm, medium and large formats.
