David Lewis-Baker

I have been photographing, painting and drawing most of my life and after retirement from Warwick University in 2006 I moved to Bath and took up new media art and street photography. I have been a member of Photo Bath since December 2016. I have become an experienced street photographer centring my practice on Bath, but also working in Bristol, London, and the cities of the USA and Europe. I try to follow the rule laid down by the great American street photographer Robert Frank: "There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment. This kind of photography is realism. But realism is not enough, there has to be vision, and the two together can make a good photograph."
