Photofusion Member | Oliver Mayhall
Oliver is a photographer based in Brixton. His interest and subsequent passion for photography developed whilst roaming the streets of Nottingham as a student. His most recent work is the result of travels around California, Mexico, Cuba and Colombia.
He views the unpredictability of everyday human routine and behaviour on the streets as if it were a stage performance, the general public the actors. Capturing the oddities, emotions and comical instances is what hooked him on the medium of Street photography.
Whilst continuing to roam the streets of London today, prying for the outlandish to unfold before the camera, he has also developed an enthusiasm for the abstract and ethereal.
Oliver attempts to mesh imagery originating in the physical world with the viewer’s own inventiveness. The challenge is to create a photograph that each viewer has a different perception of, with no right or wrong observation as it opens up differing avenues of thought and emotion.
He is currently studying an MA in Documentary Filmmaking at Goldsmiths.
