A selection of my film photos taken with my trusty Lomo LC-A were reviewed by the good folks at the Guardian who were very nice!
“This portfolio displays the photographer’s interests and considerable talent in capturing mood and structure. The architectural theme that runs through the images is strong but not overwhelming, with lines and shadows used to give focus and dynamism to the pictures. The use of passages, corridors or steps takes the viewer both into the space of the photograph and on a journey. In this respect ‘Lonely Wait’ feels a little out of place – the wall dissects the shot and creates a barrier to the viewer. However, in addition to the use of the architecture of the shots, Simon has also unified them by their mood and atmosphere, created by a subtle use of light. There is an ambiguity to the images, and in ‘Water from nowhere’ and ‘HEB alley’ there is a sense of drama or even menace. A sense that something more may be happening in the image, rather than just a description of a time and a place”
