Ken Murray, Carlisle GB, 1949.

Studied graphic design and photography at the Stadsacademie, Maastricht, NL

My photography can best be described as photographic minimalisme.
I look for a certain tranquility in my work, this to counterbalance a feeling of unrest and dissatisfaction with the fast society in which we live.

The photographs are often of a graphic nature in which the original subject is isolated from it's surroundings consequently taking on an identity of it's own.

To me photography equals emotion, when out with my camera the things I encounter are determined by my spiritual state of mind.

My work is mainly inspired by Greece and in particular by the Cylcladic island of Paros where I have lived and worked since the early eighties. During my first visit I immediatly fell in love with the special light, the warm vibrant colours, the architecture of human proportions, and of course the people of the island.

Often I compare photography with long distance running, sometimes I can go for days on end without finding a single composition and then, after turning off, there it is staring me straight in the face.
