Statement

Paul Sucksmith's photographic work is engaged in a search for clues in the hidden stories and personal histories found in people and places.

Paul's imagery embraces the realities of urban life, exploring the absurdity, pathos, cruelty, menace and beauty found in the apparent mundanity of the common place.

He seeks to use the camera as a tool utilised in the deconstruction of the generic, everyday imagery which surrounds us.

With the fusion of abstractionism and documentation which takes place within his work we see an exciting element of chance at play, often hinting at an inherent darkness.
