About Simon Ashmore

Simon is a Kent-based photographer who uses the medium to create distinctive, often abstract images that find easier comparison with some styles of painting and print-making than with photography as most people think of it. In this work, the traditional photographic virtues of sharpness and notions of capturing an 'accurate' record of the scene in front of the camera, yield to an expressive language of mood, tone, and shape. Dramatic seascapes, wild ink-like reflections, and dense forests are reoccurring subjects in Simon's work, which has been widely exhibited.
