Making the connection between fashion and architecture,Ted will show some of the inspiration he takes from clothing - often scoured from the women’s clothing sections of eBay - and architecture which resulted in a multi-image monochrome exhibition featuring many of London’s landmark buildings.
Photography played an important part in Ted’s working life as a graphic designer; either buying it, commissioning it or setting up and art-directing shoots but he realised he was a frustrated photographer, wanting it to be his own work. So in 2005, he took out his trusty old 35mm Nikon FE (purchased in 1979) and started taking photographs seriously. Ted set himself the same parameters he still holds dear today: that he would only shoot on film, only in black and white, and that all his images would include a human element. For Ted, the scene needs to work in monochrome and the more graphic the better.
Ted now concentrates on large projects, the first three of which (CityShapes, Under Glass, Under Tracks) have all resulted in exhibitions and is currently researching and starting to put together his next project, centred around The Square Mile in the City of London.
