Leon Gateley

As a child, when I was asked 'what do you want to be when you're older?' Contrary to the astronauts and police officers, 'a photographer!' I would respond. I have always been intrigued by the process of recording images; but also of how my perception from behind the lens can represent a scene in a unique way. Somewhere between a scientist and an artist, the photographer is the creator of a moment frozen in time - an alternate reality. It is this surreality of the image that draws me to the practise of photography.
