Philip Durell

United Kingdom

Philip Durell is a fine art photographer who has created a new series of urban and natural landscape photographs for 2019. Inspired by Impressionism, he presents a painted quality achieved without the use of computer manipulation. His intention is to free the imagination encouraging the observer to explore and interpret the essence of the image rather than a detailed recording of it. Durell is part of the duo ‘Mr.C and Mr.D’ along with his lifelong friend David Caldwell. The two have travelled the world to capture the grandeur of dramatic and remote landscapes on camera. Durell comments, “My photography aims to complement the spaces we live and work in by generating or enhancing a mood and atmosphere. Subtle and intriguing, my objective is to create images that you can explore and inhabit time and time again.” Mr.C and Mr.D aim to capture a distinct mood, unique to each location. They are inspired by the beauty and atmospherics of natural locations where there is minimal intervention by man. Places that evoke a genuine meditative and calming space combined with certain otherworldly qualities. They first exhibited ‘Nowhere to Somewhere’ at the Menier Gallery, Central London, in 2018.
