Gavin John is a self-trained photographer who, in this age of multimedia overload, finds himself compelled to return time and again to the purity and power of the single, still image.
The diverse complexities Earth’s landscapes and cities have to offer have provided Gavin with a wealth of inspiration. As well as revelling in the huge variety of sweeping landscapes, he delights in juxtaposing the epic with the intimate and playing with perceptions of scale, isolating specific features, and concentrating on colours, geometry, and textures to create abstract works of art. He lives to shoot natural images in remote wild places, but when at home Gavin takes on commissions for architecture, product, and portrait photography. Gavin releases a calendar of landscape photography annually and his work has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions and has been published in print and online. His fine art photography adorns the walls of many corporate offices. His most recent installation is a 17-minute movie of his landscape photography shown on the big screen in Melbourne’s Federation Square. www.gavinjohnphotography.com www.travelphotography.com.au
