Louis Stopforth is a multi disciplinary artist, who’s interests within photography are often centred around the materiality of the photograph as well as its representational nature as a visual descriptor. In exploring these themes there is often an element of challenging the viewers preconceptions of what a photograph is and how we expect it to operate. In his own practice there is a consistent exploration of the physical form of the work and the subject being intertwined to produce an integrated viewing experience.
His works also often manifest in a liminal state, questioning the completion of the photograph as well as being an investigation into photography's process and fabrication.
