Next Generation 2015: Future Greats
Contemporary photography is entering a limitless post-analogue phase of innovation. Aesthetica has handpicked a selection of promising young photographers working across documentary, fine art and experimental digital media, in partnership with London College of Communication. These creatives are pushing the limits of photography through cross-platform experimentation. We interview London and Toronto based photographer and London College of Communication alumnus Carl Bigmore.
Carl is a documentary photographer with a preoccupation for environmental portraiture and landscapes, exploring the realms of fact and fiction, alongside the relationship between individuals and their surroundings. He is particularly interested in how people relate to their environment during a period of rapid ecological change. He has exhibited in both solo and group shows internationally, having graduated in 2014 with a Masters in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the London College of Communication. In addition to Aesthetica, his photography has been featured in It’s Nice That, Der Freitag and Artefact Magazine as well as being commissioned for the FT Weekend and Oh Comely magazine. In 2015 his project Between Two Mysteries was shortlisted for the European Publishers Award for Photography, constituting an exploration of the Pacific Northwest, an area which has long fascinated the photographer.
