Evan Skuthorpe is a London-based photographer principally interested in recording the banal and mundane nature of of the urban environment and the familiar and intrinsic qualities of life within. In September 2019, he completed his Bachelor of the Arts Photography degree (with honours) via the Interactive Design Institute at the School of Creative Arts, University of Hertfordshire.
Born in the Australian capital in the early 1980s, the original Generation Y, Evan spent the lion's share of his childhood living around the world, namely in Saudi Arabia, Singapore and the United Kingdom. All these left a lasting impression, with Evan later spending his formative years back in Australia where he graduated High School in 1999. The next two years witnessed Evan delivering pizzas and making the best damn burgers in the world at a local fast food chain while Evan studied three diplomas simultaneously - in software development, network engineering, and multimedia, completing them in 2002. After graduating, Evan set off on a one-way flight to the cultural capital of London to seek his fame and fortune.
Professionally speaking, Evan has established a career as User Experience Designer in the creative design industries of London, having worked both in-house and agency-side for some of the UKs biggest companies since.
It was only relatively recently that Evan developed his interest in the artform of photography, and soon this became an all-consuming passion. Evan decided to formalise his interest in photography commencing his BA (Hons) Photography degree studies in 2015, graduating in 2019. Evan’s work is in medium and long-term projects.
Seeking to grow his profile as a photographer, Evan has begun to self-publishing his work, the vast majority of which is photographed in analogue in 35mm and medium format.
