The Contact Print
August 8, 2014 - September 21, 2014
Stephen Tester is a fine art Photographer and printmaker. His engagement with film photography started at 9 years old when he made his first contact print. He has a passion for landscape photography and is attracted to photograph those places he connects to and engages with. Not only concerned with the physical objects seen through the camera, but the elusiveness of the moment, the light that falls, the breeze smell and the quiet sense of place; its soul.
His use of film, particularly with large format cameras, and hand coated papers provides the means to create unique, individual photographs unconstrained by proprietary processes. He is influenced by Paul Caponigro, Michael Kenna, Don Worth and Gordon Undy.
As a print maker Stephen utilises his photographic skills to produce works on paper printed from photogravure plates.
The subject matter often includes architecture and insights of places often overlooked by others. His prints are finely crafted and provide an atmospheric and evocative view of the subject that supports the intent of the original designer.
