Neil Shirreff is a British artist and photographer based in London. His interest in photography has always lain in the alchemy of its materials and in its ability to describe a visual world beyond reach of the human eye. Currently the sense of wonder and excitement he holds for photography's reactive properties has reduced all traces of realism in his images to abstraction. These projects demonstrate how, over time, Shirreff has stripped the medium to its bare essentials, and striven to innovate techniques that instil in the viewer the same curiosity and inquisitiveness he shares, for exploring the medium through its own prism.
He has exhibited in UK, Germany and Canada and his work is held in numerous private collections.
