John House – Bristol contemporary photographer, artist and curator

This is the portfolio site for contemporary Bristol photographer and artist John House.

I am a contemporary Bristol photographer, curator, digital artist, collector of curiosities and occasional film maker. I work in art education alongside pursuing my personal photographic practice.

My work is mostly in the form of  Photography and is concerned with how people interact with the environment around them and what this can say about cultural identities. I am interested in landscape and documentary photography as well as exploring experimental approaches.

Artistic Photography

I specialise in artistic contemporary photography, seeking inspiration from my surroundings, I try to capture the visual poetry of everyday life and consider how this reflects on culture and society.

I am interested in collecting objects and ephemera that reveal a small window into other peoples lives and use these to inspire my work and ideas.  Alongside my photography, I have also curated several collaborative projects and experiment with other forms of digital and lens based art.

John Constable once said;
“I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may, – light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful”

This is a concept which I find forms a common link between all my photographs.
