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.”

Tony Fisher in brief
Tony Fisher is a photographic artist who looks through the lens and captures what he sees transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary, seizing the moment.
Tony wants to explore and research loneliness, isolation and well-being, something he has battled with personally for over 40 years. The project, starting in mid-2019, will take Tony on a journey of reflection and self-discovery and introduce him to others who have experienced loneliness and isolation too at Artcore, QUAD, Air Arts Royal Derby Hospital (Derby), Erewash Museum, Ilkeston (Derbyshire), City Arts, Broadway (Nottingham), and The Arthouse (Wakefield).
