Tony Fisher Says…

“I work mostly in colour. I love vibrancy, however I use monochrome where I feel it conveys a different meaning as I feel it appropriate. None of my photographs are digitally manipulated and are a representation of what I see in life. What the viewer perceives is in essence the image I have captured through the camera lens. My photographs capture the moment of life; many are quirky and humorous, emotional, abstract and intense but all have a relevant and significant meaning.”
