Micky Thompson – Photographer
Photography has been a personal journey of exploration since I first entered a darkroom at the Hornsey College of Art, London, in 1963. In the intervening years many influences have moulded my personal style. Training as a graphic designer gave me a strong sense of compositional design, often leading to a ‘less is more’ way of composing images. Looking at my photographs, you will notice that I do not concentrate on any given subject matter, my style being defined more by the simplification and isolation of images which become a series of carefully crafted, compositionally pleasing, observed situations which I invite the viewer to enjoy. Much of the work leans towards the abstract exploring the graphic within the photographic and is bound by a strong sense of composition and style. Micky Thompson lives in the market town of Hungerford, West Berkshire in Southern England.
