Matthew Ferris

The style and technique I display could be perceived as being productively experimental, incorporating elements of fine art and editorial photography, heavily influenced by the likes of Gjon Mili, Mark Power, Josef Koudelka, Jim Goldberg and Lewis Hine. I enjoy looking through images that respond to a particular social issue, that embody strong ideologies and have a particular approach to convey a set of meanings. Through exploration of Allegorical photography I have an understanding of how images deal with Issues around visual signs, narrative and allegory along with symbolism, rhetoric and fantasy.
