Richard's range of influences is vast having spent many years travelling and refining his art, however he is particularly inspired by the work of Henri Cartier Bresson, Helmut Newton and Sebastiao Salgado. His passion for photography has taken him to many corners of the globe on a quest to capture images that ignite the senses, shift perspectives and invite viewers to explore what they think and how they perceive.
For Richard, photography is about capturing that decisive moment that encompasses emotion, meaning and truth. "Each photograph tells a story, a record of a moment that's in the past and has gone forever. My aim is to convey a sense of meaning and empathy through the imagery I share, and to unite myself, the image, and the viewer in an exploration of what it means to be human. It is my hope that through such exploration we can cultivate a deeper understanding of our place within the world"
