Guy Sargent's photographs are often driven by a physical, intellectual and emotional response to the subject, whether it's architecture, a portrait or an object found in a museum, employing the role of a casual but incisive observer.
Taking photographs is a constant and rewarding pleasure, the chosen subjects are diverse and varied, often inspired by travel, always looking for a fresh view.
Landscape, in particular, the coastal landscape is a constant source of learning.
Along the way, there are visits to museums, stately homes, cities, towns, and their streets.
The busyness of cities and the tranquility of a remote landscape offer highly contrasting but equally revealing opportunities for image making.
The work of many painters, both old masters through to living contemporary artists are a constant inspiration, combined with a passion for visual arts, design and typography which filters down to the posters available here.
There is a quiet stillness in much of his work, a distillation of visual imagery to give a simplified clarity to the work.
The historic and contemporary worlds are equally represented.
His work has been exhibited twice at the Summer Exhibition - Royal Academy of Arts, London.
