Intro by Robin Pearson
It’s rad to see young photographers coming up. Archie is a great example of someone working with what he’s got and making the most of it – a quality that is fundamental to expression and flexibility within photography. With quite humble equipment, Archie has captured these amazing images around south east England.
One of my favourite things about these photos is that they aren’t fisheye! Obviously, the fisheye lens is a fantastic tool for BMX photographers but personally I find it quite refreshing to see a collection of images shot with a standard-length lens. Archie’s composition style errs on the tight side of things and that’s fine with me, it’s a strong style that carries through his images – they look good together as a body of work.
I would say my favourite shot in here is the nosepress at the DIY spot. A high viewpoint and nice lighting with that very pleasing composition – lovely use of corners and lines – totally do it for me.
Let’s hope we see more from Archie in the future!
