The AOP Members Online Gallery opens with an exhibition of award-winning fine art and advertising imagery from member Peter Dazeley. This exhibition is a collection of Dazeley’s favourite images that were originally exhibited at the Royal Photographic Society in November 2011, which coincided with the Bath art festival. His work is an on-going journey of discovery, experimenting with different processes, lenses and techniques, looking for and photographing people and things that he finds visually stimulating. This is an opportunity to see the breadth of Dazeley’s style and subject matter.
Dazeley’s philosophy is about taking photography back to its origins, and rebelling against the modern trend of deskilled photography that seems to be so popular nowadays. "Making the ordinary look extraordinary is Dazeley's gift", says Sarah Ryder Richardson, who represents Dazeley in the United Kingdom.
Even after 45 years of working as a photographer, Dazeley has not lost his zest and excitement for the art of photography. This year he has started a fine art book project, which is taking up a lot of his time, with Hidden London as its working title; a taster of which can be seen here, with the two Battersea Power Station images. As a Londoner, Dazeley is on a mission to record London’s iconic buildings in the 21st Century for this project.
