About Scott Perry

Scott is a photographic artist and educator, working with photographic paper as a material to create new worlds, other than always relying on the real world for the catalyst of his photographic practice. Often eschewing conventional tools of photography, Scott often builds cameras or photographic material, making the surface and process of the work as important as the final result. Interpreting photography as ‘drawing with light’ his work is not restricted to a fixed presentation on the wall, instead using light in space involving the viewer into the photographic space; bringing the viewer closer to light’s performance in the photographic process. Scott’s practice is based within theoretical research into the relationship between the viewer and the photograph, exploring the ‘performative indexicality’ of light within the photographic process.

A photography lecturer at University Centre Peterborough and Peterborough Regional College, Scott has exhibited his work within multiple group exhibitions throughout London and the UK, while also exhibiting internationally in 2017 at the Polish Pinhole Photography Festival. While also exhibiting a collaborative project, Omniscient London, as a solo show at The Gallery on the Corner in London in 2016. Scott also has experience in delivering photography based workshops and is passionate about working within education to invest in the next generation of photographic artists.
