My work concentrates not on what is beautiful, or remarkable, or extraordinary (although it encompasses all three), but what is right before our eyes. Everywhere we are, wherever we look, on whatever point we focus – but what we rarely see. My driving force is to counter the ‘unseeing eye’.
Biography: The biography or artists statement, whichever you prefer, should ideally be written by someone other than the artist. However, since Geoff knows of no one willing or able to produce such an account, you are stuck with his version of events, which may or may not reflect reality. So, what should a biographical section contain? His qualifications and credentials in his field of study, the fact that he was born in 1970 and had a happy childhood, or the driving forces that compel him to do what he does despite the constant threat of ridicule, rejection, depression and bankruptcy. Perhaps a little of all three: He was born in 1970 and had a happy childhood. After studying philosophy and photojournalism, Geoff started his career abroad as a documentary photographer. However, it soon became apparent that this wasn't the job for him. "Basically, I just didn't have the stomach for it. After a couple of years, I realised that I couldn't spend the rest of my life doing this." In 2002, Geoff gave up agency work to concentrate on his fine art photography and printing business.
