From Brighton, England now living in Kansas City.

 

My work can be best viewed as 'sets' using the 'slideshows'.

 

These images were made while on the road in the United States between 2008 to present. The work is personal, local and national. They could be described as a collection of psychic co-ordinate points. They are the search for a kind of personal orientation between the dream or idea of a place and my actual experience of it in reality. Half truth and half fiction, these photographs are tangled in personal symbolism. They plot a psychogeography and are a journey which explores the destination.

  

I am happy for people to blog my images, but PLEASE let me know first, so I can keep track.

Thank you.

I spent three hours riveted to my chair the day I discovered Simon’s work on another website. I must have studied every image. Twice. His remarkable photos pay homage to the great photographers of our time while forging a unique voice of his own, full of humor and heart. Even his most brazenly sarcastic and ironic photos have an underlying affection for the subject matter. Oh yeah, the compositions are great too. Though his photos are technically strong, he doesn't seem to be weighed down by equipment or hung up on technical data. His work is all about subject matter, composition and having something to say. I’ve never met the man but, judging by his photos, conversations with him would likely be lively and insightful. Cheers, my friend, and keep that camera pointed at the stuff we overlook.

I write testimonials when the I reach the "Favoriting Threshold of Futility" - what's the point of a putting a star on something when more than half the images seem to need one? This guy consistently takes what would be boring, stereotyped images in other hands and just whacks them clean out of the park.

Your stream is so on point it's out of reach. Clever, carefully composed and damn funny. I have to think of Stephen Shore with Martin Parrs sense of humour. Waiting for more miracles to come. Sincerely foddokross
