Steven Barritt is an artist, photographer and Lecturer based in London who’s work has been shown in The National Portrait Gallery and The Photographers Gallery, The Moscow Museum of Modern Art, as well as selected group shows and solo exhibitions. His work encompasses portraiture, landscape and constructed narrative, exploring recurring themes of human relationships with the environment and inter personal relationships. His work shows a constant questioning of the reality of the photograph as it presents itself on the surface - photography is capable of representing the physical world with such veracity yet it reveals only an interpreted reality. This is exemplified in his constant attraction to man-made or altered landscapes and the manipulation of our environment, the manipulation of a sitter to extract a portrait that both reveals yet obscures meaning, or constructing entire alternate realities and personas exploring the darker reality of the human condition. He works almost exclusively with traditional analogue photographic techniques to produce his work, finding an irony in the perceived purity of meaning of analogue processes that seeming preclude the use of manipulation.
