Barry Cawston’s photographic subject matter is diverse. He tends to work in series, seemingly moving randomly between architecture, interiors, portraiture, landscape and social documentary but his style always remains recognisable and his photographs have an almost painterly quality that seems both contemporary and classical.
Recently these bodies of work have become larger and more detailed as he has undertaken projects which have taken up to a year to complete. These include 'Echoes from the Arboretum', 'Are We There Yet?' A Day trip to Banksy’s Dismaland and Weston-super-Mare, and 'Disturbia', a collaborative project with artist Anthony Garratt. These projects have culminated in high profile exhibitions, published books and touring museum shows.
