We have been looking at the work of…Louis Porter

Today in the Photofusion office we have been mesmerised by the sparkly holographic and velvety purple backgrounds to dog boudoirs photographed by Louis Porter in the series All that Glitters.

“Small fragments, a few loose hairs, flecks of skin, or a patch of drool are all that remains of the dogs who are being judged in the arena of the competition hall” is how Porter describes the images.

The vibrant colour palette and abstract composition are common themes throughout Porter’s work.

Louis Porter is an Australian photographer who currently lives and works in London. He has to date five monographs, the most recent of which: Conflict Resolution published by Twenty Shelves, got it’s recognition at the Photobook Award 2013. Porter has work in collections in the State Library of Victoria, Monash University Art Collection, City of Melbourne and other private collections in the UK, USA and Australia.
