biography ~
Photography has evolved as a way to challenge perspectives and create emotive art. Luke’s style is dedicated to ethereal images in the traditional medium of black and white film, through timeless aesthetic and creative compositions the artist delves to understand his own romanticist approach to human life and the natural world. The artist looks at modern scenes through a nostalgic lens which breathes life through the format of film. Heavily influenced from a period of the artists life living in Paris, France the artist indulges in the romantic and sophisticated culture of Paris and Saint-Tropez, drawing inspiration from the creative movement of the French new wave in the 1960’s – 70’s.
The time spent in Australia has shaped the way the artist uses light and relates shape and form to the native Australasian landscapes, casting a deeper relationship to his surroundings. The artists work lives by the Greek word ‘meraki’, derived from the Turkish “merak”(labor of love) meaning to do something with soul, creativity or love; to leave a piece of yourself in the work.​​​​​​​
