Glen Barton – photographer from Bells Beach, Australia. I began shooting on a borrowed canon A1 12 years ago and since then have worked to develop my own style of image making. I am largely self taught, but have completed several short courses and 1 year of a professional photography diploma at NMIT in Melbourne.
Over the last 10 years I have participated in many group exhibitions, and held three solo exhibitions, entitled “the eyes of india”, “experience”, and the launch for the summer range for fashion label, Mortimer and Luke.
I am currently shooting with a canon DSLR, and have recently rediscovered the joys of lo-fi image making, and am experimenting with a medium fomat (120mm) Holga – a plastic lensed beast that is beautifully unpredictable and expressive.
To me, making images is a way to engage with the world and the people around me, and the joy and “in the moment” peace i get from taking photos is something that i wouldnt swap for the world.
Hope you enjoy some of my images!!!!
