Richard is Deputy Chair of the Royal Photographic Society’s Contemporary Photography Panel, responsible for assessing RPS Members’ submissions for ARPS and FRPS Distinctions. The RPS describes Contemporary Photography as ‘Photography that communicates a visual realisation of a stated argument, idea or concept’ and Richard will be presenting his own work and talking about how to work towards an RPS Distinction.
Richard says that in his view ‘it starts with what you are interested in – this means that you will have something to say about the subject photographically’.
In relation to his own work Richard explains that he is ‘photographing Spaces and Places in man-made outdoor environments both urban and rural. I am particularly interested in how we perceive our spaces, their different characteristics and their psychological effects on us.’
Richard’s work has been exhibited frequently, including in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibitions in 2016 and 2017.
