Garry Wade. From northern England. Studied engineering, physics and electronics at Newcastle Polytechnic until someone gave him a camera. Has spent the last 25 years working in New York as a commercial and fine art photographer.
With an obsession for process, scale and technique he started using these processes to further delve into alternate ways of viewing the photographic image. With combining new and old techniques he's currently working on a gallery show of 36" x 52" diptychs produced on large sheets of enameled aluminum.
Recent explorations have taken him back in time to the archaic process of 'Tin Types' and 'Ferrotypes'. From these explorations he has developed a new process by which modern day Giclee prints can be mounted onto aluminum and sealed allowing images to be viewed with out the need of glass.
The INSECT series comes from a long time interest in the complexities and diversity of these small and not so small creatures. Their shapes and colorings to the shear volume of differences that exist. The images are unaffected and show the subjects in a simplistic and un-stylized way. He has also started to create abstractions using the insect forms as building blocks. These abstractions start to become less about the insect and more a graphic design based on insect shapes.
