Guy Sargent's photographs are often driven by a physical, intellectual and emotional response to the subject, whether it's architecture, a portrait or an object found in a museum. Sometimes the approach is confrontational, in particular with architecture, sometimes he employs the role of a casual but incisive observer.
Taking photographs is a constant and rewarding pleasure, the chosen subjects are diverse and varied, often inspired by travel, always looking for a fresh view.
Landscape, in particular, the coastal landscape is a constant source of learning. Along the way, there are visits to museums, stately homes, cities, towns, and their streets. The busyness of cities and the tranquillity of a remote landscape offer highly contrasting but equally revealing opportunities for image making.
There is a quiet stillness in much of his work, a distillation of visual imagery to give a simplified clarity to the photographs. If this is not sufficient, multiple images can be used to convey this.
The historic and contemporary worlds are equally represented.
